Thousands of Students Participate in Salmon Summit 2013

With the help of dozens of volunteers, thousands of students release salmon they raised in their classrooms at Columbia Park in Kennewick.

The two-day event, sponsored by the Benton County Conservation District, involves 120 classrooms and also allows kids to spend the day learning about salmon and the river by visiting educational stations set up in the park.

Salmon Summit 2013 will continue tomorrow.

As a result, the boat launch on the east side of Columbia Park will be closed from Midnight to 3:30 PM tomorrow.
