Calendar of outdoor events in Juneau.
Late summer brings great excitement to Southeast Alaska when spawning salmon return to their natal streams. If you take time to visit one of these spawning areas, there's a great show to watch as gulls and other birds congregate in great numbers to feed on the dead and dying fish. One year in August, Bob Armstrong sat for two hours in the parking area near the DIPAC hatchery at Sheep Creek, where hordes of chum and some pink salmon crowded the stream, excavating nests, depositing eggs and covering the eggs with gravel.
