The Salmon Are Running!
by Tom Reimers, Nov 10, 2021
Cosumnes River Salmon Migration
The salmon are running! They are swimming up the river, over the Dam, and on their way. This is a video taken of their route at the North Beach yesterday. We have a salmon ladder to assist them on their migration. More about our ladder here https://bit.ly/3c5mvPm
If you do get a chance to go check the migration out, it is a good opportunity to explain Dam safety to kids. For example – never walk on the Dam. Even when the water above the Dam looks calm and inviting, it can have a strong and dangerous undertow. In addition, a lot of the Dam structure is under the water and has the potential to cause serious injury.
Most people have little experience with Dams so taking the opportunity to talk Dam safety with new neighbors and community kids is a good practice.
Thanks to Myrna and Jay for the heads up about the salmon! Thank you to everyone who has stopped by this page. If you would like to talk or take a walk one morning, my number is at the bottom of my candidate’s statement pinned to the top of this page.
