Winter 2011 Updates from Glenwood Springs Hatchery

Posted on: December 7th, 2011


The latest updates and news about our programs at Glenwood Springs Hatchery on Orcas Island.

Glenwood Springs Chinook program: More than 2,200 Chinook made their way back from the ocean to Glenwood Springs Hatchery on Orcas Island this fall. This was great news for our program, which, between 2004 and 2009, had less than 50 Chinook return each year. The increase in returns is the result of numerous modifications made to the program combined with improved ocean conditions.

Orcas Community Turns Out In Droves to See Glenwood Chinook Return to Hatchery: More than 80 people turned out for LLTK’s first public Salmon Homecoming Open House event at Glenwood Springs Hatchery on September 25. Attendees enjoyed science displays, facility tours, and opportunities to get up-close-and-personal with some of the 2,200 Chinook that returned to Glenwood Springs Hatchery this fall. The Open House followed our annual luncheon at the home of Jim and Kathy Youngren, where guests heard a presentation from NOAA researcher Vera Trainer.
