Fiber Optics Map

The fiber-optics map lights the route salmon take when they leave Issaquah Creek as smolts and when they return as adults. It traces the salmon’s path through Issaquah Creek, Lake Sammamish, the Sammamish River, Lake Washington, Lake Union, the Lake Washington Ship Canal, Puget Sound, the Straight of Juan de Fuca and the Pacific Ocean. This exhibit is lighted during the day and off in the evening.

The map was installed in 2003 and funded with a grant from Microsoft Corporation.
