DRUM TO CALL THE SALMON HOME: It’s a Fauntleroy Creek tradition. 5 pm, gather at the fish ladder overlook across from the ferry terminal and up the slope (event moves to nearby covered carport if the rain hasn’t stopped – follow the driveway just east of the viewpoint). Bring fish jokes as well as whatever you want to use to drum. Or just bring yourself! All ages welcome. (Fauntleroy/Director)
