Join the Cedar River Salmon Journey and see spawning salmon in October at several sites along the Cedar River near Renton.

Experienced volunteer naturalists will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekend day at the Renton Library, Cedar River Park, Cavanaugh Pond, and Landsburg Park and Dam.

Each site is unique. At the Renton Library, stand directly above the salmon and note the many human changes to the Cedar River. At Cedar River Park, see the fish weir and learn how it is used. When you visit Cavanaugh Pond, take a 20 minute tour along the river to view salmon and learn about native plants and habitat restoration. At Landsburg, learn about greater Seattle's water supply and watch how some salmon are allowed to pass into the municipal Cedar River Watershed.

Sponsored by: The Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Public Utilities, City of Renton, King County Flood Control District, the Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish (WRIA 8) Salmon Recovery Council, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
