SALMON WATCH 2017
On Sunday, Oct. 22, volunteers officially began watching for spawners in lower Fauntleroy Creek. State Fish and Wildlife has predicted a sizable return of coho to Puget Sound, only later than some years. We expect the watch to go into mid November.
Watchers monitor during the five hours after high tide, counting fish and noting behavior. This year, they are on special alert for spawners that may be in distress because of polluted water, leading to their dying before spawning. The University of Washington, Tacoma, is leading the regional study.
Welcome to the Fauntleroy watershed website - the closest thing to being here on the West Seattle peninsula, Seattle, Washington, USA. On these pages, you'll find details about the watershed's major natural features - Fauntleroy Creek and Fauntleroy Park - as well as information about our education program and all manner of other things. Enjoy your visit!
