SUNDAY: Drumming to call the salmon home to Fauntleroy Creek

No Seahawks game on Sunday, so here’s a reason to go outdoors: Fauntleroy Creek advocates are ready to host you at the pandemic-era version of an autumn tradition – drumming to call the salmon home. Volunteers are keeping watch on the creek starting today in hopes of seeing spawners, so it’s time: Wear a mask and bring any kind of drum to the 4 pm-4:45 pm drumming event Sunday at 4539 SW Director Place (just off upper Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Director, across from the ferry terminal); drumming will guide you into the (distanced!) circle.

    Will there be any other (distanced) “events” to be able to come to the creek during the season to take a peek? My understanding is you can’t really see the salmon on Fauntleroy creek unless you are invited onto the private property.

      This isn’t a viewing event. Salmon are not a guaranteed sighting at any point along the creek but for example there’s the footbridge you can walk to ffrom the park entrance on SW Barton, and the overlook across from the ferry dock.

    If watchers begin to see spawners and we have a high level of confidence that fish are likely to be visible on a weekend, we will host an “open creek” for anyone who wants to come with mask in hand and a determination to keep safely distant.  Watch the Blog for an announcement!
