Kitsap Salmon Tours

We had an amazing time at Kitsap Salmon Tours! Thanks to everyone that came out to Chico Creek and stopped by to chat with us. Shore Friendly Kitsap is part of Kitsap County’s Department of Community Development in the Planning & Environmental Programs division, which means we were in great company. Visitors also learned about the County’s Start Here! program, the 2024 Comprehensive Plan Update, and maybe most importantly, ways we can all support salmon, along shorelines and everywhere else!
