Details:
On the third Saturday in October each year Coleman National Fish Hatchery celebrates the annual Return of the Salmon Festival. This festival has been celebrated at the hatchery since 1991 in an effort to increase outreach and visitor use; during this one day festival thousands of people visit the hatchery. This festival is free and has many booths from Federal, State and private exhibitors that provide a wide array of information related to natural resources. Visitors at the festival can view fall Chinook salmon returning to Battle Creek and the hatchery, and may observe all aspects of day-to-day hatchery operations such as spawning, egg incubation, and juvenile rearing. Visual information sites are located on the hatchery grounds to provide a narrative for visitors to understand life history, habitat requirements, and other biological information.
