Want to see the Chimacum Chum make their epic journey back up the creek? Summer Chum were extripated from Chimacum Creek, but after dedicated restoration efforts they have made a come back and last year we counted nearly 2,000 returning to spawn!  Spawner surveys consist of hiking up the creek counting live and dead chum, scale and DNA sampling, as well as otolith removal in deceased fish. Waders and boots can be provided. If you are interested in getting involved please email or call Aliina for more information.
