On Sunday, Sept. 10, the Westwind camp and wilderness area just north of Lincoln City will honor Oregon’s most iconic fish with “Welcome the Salmon Home,” a community event to celebrate the late summer and fall salmon run.

Located at the mouth of the Salmon River, Westwind is a 529-acre camp, farm and wilderness area set in the middle of the Cascade Head UN Biosphere Reserve.

From 1 to 5 pm, guests at the event can enjoy boat and canoe tours of the Salmon River estuary, gyotaku print making and other art projects along with presentations, citizen science demonstrations and the chance to learn about the salmon cycle.

An open-fire salmon bake will be serving up perfectly prepared salmon fillets, and other refreshments will also be available.

Ferry trips to and from Westwind will depart every half hour from Knight Park, with check-in starting at 12:30 pm. Take Three Rocks Road from Highway 101 and look for signs.

All ages are welcome.

Participants should RSVP at https://westwind.org/welcome-salmon-home-2017 and are encouraged to make a $10 donation to the nonprofit Westwind Stewardship Group.
