Since 2000, the South Puget Sound Salmon Enhancement Group (SPSSEG) has been working diligently to make sure that there is place for local students and our community to learn more about these wild, iconic northwest salmon. Since its conception, the Trail has grown into a local and regional destination for salmon viewing. Media coverage ranges from the local Olympia area newspapers and blogs, to regional magazines such as Sunset, and national exposure in the National Geographic Traveler. The word is out about this excellent program and salmon viewing at the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail. Plan a visit for next October/November and see for yourself what the hype is about!
The Trail is a community supported and volunteer based program. Each year over 50 volunteer docents donate approximately 600 hours specifically to the program. The Trail is open to the general public every weekend day in November as well as Veteran’s day and the day after Thanksgiving. During the week, the Trail is reserved for school groups and classroom visits. Classes range from preschool through college. SPSSEG provides the overall organizational support and coordination necessary to operate the Trail safely and efficiently.
SPSSEG is continually searching for diverse and stable funding to keep this program thriving. We write grants, host fundraisers, and ask our supporters to help fund the Trail. This is where you can help the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail succeed. SPSSEG has set a goal to raise $2,500 through corporate and business giving to help support operations. SPSSEG uses these funds to help coordinate teachers and school field trips, pay for school buses, organize and support over 50 volunteers docents, and maintain the Trail. A $35 donation will support 10 student visits. Please help keep the Trail alive and at its educational best!
