Chum salmon return celebration at McLane Creek on Sunday

The Washington State Department of Natural Resources and the Thurston County Stream Team invite the public to celebrate the return of chum salmon to McLane Creek noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 20 at the McLane Creek Nature Trail located off of Delphi Road in South Puget Sound.

Each year thousands of chum salmon make the long journey home from the ocean to McLane Creek to spawn. The McLane Creek Nature Trail, part of Capitol State Forest and managed by DNR, offers excellent viewing of this native wild run of salmon.

Stream Team Salmon Stewards will give guided tours from DNR’s new covered shelter to the viewing platform. Hot cider and snacks will be provided, plus some hands-on learning activities.

Visitors are advised to come dressed for the weather and to wear sturdy boots or shoes. Parking is limited; carpooling is encouraged. Vehicles must have their Discover Pass displayed. For details visit the Stream Team wesbite.
