Give the gift of wild salmon

Washington Trout, a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to wild salmon recovery, is celebrating the holidays at the Washington Trout Store in Duvall. The rustic stone and wood-fronted store is in the heart of the Snoqualmie Valley. The public is invited to shop for conservation books for adults and children, artwork, science/conservation-themed toys, outdoor clothing, Washington Trout memberships and gift packages and other native fish and salmon related items.
   Proceeds from all store sales help fund Washington Trout's conservation efforts.
   The store is a combination retail/educational space, where the public can stop by to learn more about the challenges facing the Northwest's wild salmon and the efforts to save them. For 10 years, Washington Trout staff has worked on the issues that affect wild salmon conservation and recovery and to improve conditions for wild fish.
   Their projects have included habitat restoration work on the Snoqualmie, Tolt, and Stillaguamish rivers, research on native fish populations and advocacy for needed land-use, water-use and salmon-harvest management changes.
   The Washington Trout Store is located at 15629 Main Street NE in downtown Duvall. Send e-mails to wildfish@washingtontrout.org or call (425) 788-1167.
