Crown Hill resident Doug Gresham will be leading a walking tour to observe the migration of salmon up Piper’s Creek in Carkeek Park. Doug has worked on making the creek more friendly to salmon returning to spawn, helping to design and construct some of the habitat improvements.
This is our third annual Thanksgiving walk to the creek and is a rain or shine event. An ideal antidote to all of that sleep-inducing tryptophan (http://recipes.howstuffworks.com/question519.htm) ingested on Thanksgiving day. Come join your neighbors for a gently-paced, child-friendly amble to Carkeek Park. At previous walks, sharp-eyed participants have spotted masked marauding bandits (raccoons) sleeping in the tree-tops as well as hawks, woodpeckers, and other wildlife in addition to salmon.
