Tiburon Salmon Release

Tiburon Peninsula Foundation is thrilled to support the Tiburon
Salmon Institute's annual Salmon Release at Blackie's Pasture.
Three thousand juvenile Chinook salmon are released into the
wild by children who use buckets to carry fingerling salmon from
a truck to the San Francisco Bay at high tide. The salmon are
raised by students at Casa Grande High School in Petaluma from
eggs found in the Feather River.
Working in conjunction with a variety of organizations including
the California Department of Fish and Game, the California Academy
of Science, the Romberg Center for Environmental Studies, and
Trout Unlimited, the Tiburon Salmon Institute is premised on
the belief that children have power. By teaching children and
giving them hands-on experience, they learn life skills that
will help them rebuild dwindling habitat and save the salmon
fishery that currently exists.
