Issaquah Treasures

Sometimes it may feel like we’re toiling in obscurity over here at the hatchery, but this year brings a reminder that per City of Issaquah Resolution 93-15, the Issaquah Creek/Salmon Run and the Salmon Hatchery are numbers 1 and 2 on the list of treasures that make up part of the city’s work plan for 2019. These treasures were determined by a year-long, open community process that solicited input on those features of the community that make it special and unique. This will bring renewed attention to the hatchery and its operations from both officials and the public, a well-deserved recognition for all the work we do and a reminder that these treasures are important not only to us, but the community at large.
