  • Tribal Trust Responsibilities

    Quinault Tribal Fishing Quides

    The hatchery's primary role and responsibility lies in the relationship between the United States and federally recognized Pacific Northwest Native American Tribes. We also provide tribal youth opportunities for employment and to connect with nature.

  • Connecting People with Nature


    We provide opportunities for children and adults to learn more about nature by offering school activities, volunteer projects, and site visits and tours.

    See Educational Programming for more information.
