Summer is coming to the Locks


As summer approaches, the locks will see a steady increase in visitors either walking the grounds or actually heading in from or out to the Sound. One of our volunteers, Emily Dunn, has provided us with more of her photos showing views of the locks as well as several pics from the garden. The smolt slides are installed to help start the young salmon on their sea journey. Two of the dam gates have been replaced so far and the rest will be replaced over the coming months. Those who choose to use the walkway for cross canal access should be alert to posted information on dates and times when the walkway may be closed. For now, here are some of our latest pictures and there will be more to follow as the summer progresses.
