Run4Salmon -- A Delectable Conclusion -- Photos by Dan Bacher

The Run4Salmon 2022 concluded with a ceremony and salmon cooked the traditional way under the guidance of Dania Colegrove, Hoopa Valley Tribe Member and Richard Myers, Yurok Tribe Beach, on Muir Beach on August 1. Salmon on their way back to the Central Valley rivers historically go to Muir Beach and other areas along the Marin County Coast to feed just before making their long journey up the rivers.
