Connect with us, with your community, with the world.
People have gathered to celebrate and enjoy wild salmon in the Skeena for millennia. We share unique responsibilities as inhabitants of the world’s last remaining and most diverse wild salmon ecosystem. Our communities are connected by salmon.
We believe in the power of community to educate, define our roles, and lead us forward to create a global model for human and salmon interaction, sustainability and coexistence. Your participation can be wide and deep or short and focused. Whatever works for you, we invite you to join us.
