Fish Ladder Viewing, Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, Issaquah, WA
USA
School children visit the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery this September 26th to see the salmon returning from their journey at sea as they swim against the current to spawn in Issaquah Creek. Here children view salmon that have made their way up the fish ladder to spawn in the hatchery. Constructed in 1936 by the WPA and opened in 1937, the hatchery is credited with restoring the historic Issaquah Creek salmon runs after decades of logging and mining damaged the creek and surrounding watershed. The hatchery is the only urban location in Washington where visitors can get right up next to salmon that are returning to spawn. To learn more visit their website: http://www.issaquahfish.org/

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
