    Hatchery Hosts

    Mary and Larry Shown are spending their first season with us as volunteers. They're helping out with grounds maintenance, visitor services, etc. Mary also loves to bake so we're lucky!

    Pollinator sightings have increased since we planted native flowering plants and created homes for Mason bees. Butterflies, bees and flies abound!

Almost time to open the ladder!

In early May we'll open the fish ladder to begin gathering spring Chinook. Until then, we're busy feeding fish and working on various projects around the Hatchery.

These fish were raised at Quilcene National Fish Hatchery. While we don't raise coho salmon at Little White Salmon NFH, the egg-to-fry hatch for our spring and Upriver Bright fall Chinook salmon is similar. Credit: Florian Graner
