Spring Creek National Fish Hatchery Open House

Just a short (and beautiful) drive from the Portland metro area sits a gem along the banks of the Columbia River, and you're invited to come and check it out on September 20th from 9am to 3pm. Take a tour of the hatchery and visitor center and even witness Tule Fall Chinook spawning in action. It's great for the whole family.

    To the casual passerby, the sounds of young laughter and splashing in a river may evoke an image of youth hard at play; but USFWS intern, Kira Marie Cazenave, has a different story to tell.

    In this installment of Faces of Nature, Kira offers a window into what it's like to be a young 'Biologist-For-A-Day' as a group of students from Washington team up with a pair of USFWS biologists to peer beneath the surface of the Newaukum River and check up on the health of mussels and the water...and have a little fun in the process.
