The Olympia Traverse is right around the corner! Get your team together and take advantage of our increasingly sunny weather and head outside with your kayak, bike, or running shoes! Don’t feel like a spawning salmon? Help our spawners swim up stream by volunteering at a water station or just cheering them on!
Since April 2008 I have taken the personal opportunity to volunteer at People for Puget Sound’s ‘Pier Peer’ events.
These events take place primarily at Boston Harbor Marina in Olympia. At about 9 or 10 pm on a Saturday, we assemble at the marina and lead participants to the docks where we have staged submersible lights.
These lights draw creatures to the surface where we can catch them, view them, and safely return them to the water at the end of the night.
I highly recommend this FREE family event! Contact Gaby Byrneat People for Puget Sound to reserve spaces at the next event (pre-registration is required). See PFPS’s events page for dates, times, and location.
Below are photos of some of the creatures that have made appearances
