Project Watershed’s latest fundraising endeavor “Sponsor a Salmon at Kus-kus-sum” combines education and stewardship. After students from Queneesh, Arden, Brooklyn, Puntledge and Royston schools participated in Project Watershed’s estuary presentations and field trips they created painted salmon for people to sponsor. The students learned how the wall in front of Kus-kus-sum is used by seals to effectively prey on salmon passing the site and know that removing the wall will help save salmon.

You are welcome to drive on to the Kus-kus-sum site this week and park in the lot we are working to unpave. You can paint and sponsor a salmon to hang on the fence or sponsor one a student has painted for you. Project Watershed staff and/or board members will be on site to answer questions about the project and point out interesting facts. Salmon can be sponsored for a donation of $25 or more; business sponsorships are also available. You do not have to visit the site to sponsor a salmon, you can simply click the “Sponsor a Salmon” button in this email. Every donation made to sponsor a salmon will be matched by our Estuary Angel.

We need to raise $33,000 to meet our June 30th target of $100,000.
