Nisqually River Education Project and local schools toss salmon carcasses to improve environment


The Nisqually River Education Project works with local schools year round, with activities like water quality monitoring, habitat restoration and nature investigation. The smelliest, slimiest activity by far happens during the month of January: salmon carcass tossing!

While this activity is fun, it offers more benefits to the environment than may be obvious. Check out the reasons behind the salmon carcass tossing, including a video showcasing a recent community event!
