Give the gift of salmon habitat at Holiday Tree Toss!
Santa may deliver his gifts by sleigh, but this holiday season you can by canoe! Help us give the gift of habitat to salmon in the Slough!
With all the tinsel and lights removed, we will re-purpose discarded holiday trees by strategically inserting them into existing log jams to increase beneficial salmon habitat in the lower Columbia Slough. All are welcome at the Holiday Tree Toss!
This year, this highly popular event is taking place at Kelley Point Park on Jan 4th. The event is now waitlisted, but you can still add your name to our waitlist.

Thank you so much to Stephen Rice for producing our event poster for the third year! Check out more of his artwork on Instagram: @yahwth
