The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group strives to deepen the connection between land, people, and salmon through restoration, education, and research.

For over 30 years, with the help of our donors, volunteers, and staff, the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group participates in restoration and research projects throughout the entire Hood Canal Watershed. These efforts not only benefit local salmon populations, but also support the ecological diversity of this beautiful and scenic natural community.

In addition to habitat restoration and research, HCSEG carries out an assortment of educational programs and summer camps that are free to our community, supporting students, teachers, and life-long learners. HCSEG also provides internships and scholarships to local Hood Canal students each year.

Located next to the Union River estuary, HCSEG’s headquarters, the Salmon Center, operates certified organic garden (with produce available to our community by donation only!), as well as a variety of farm animals to demonstrate how salmon, humans, and agriculture can coexist. The farm is also home to honeybees, a pollinator garden, and a dog park! HCSEG also maintains several miles of walking trails within the Union River Estuary, so that the public can enjoy this recently restored habitat and observe the rebound of nature in this critical salmon ecosystem. All of these amenities and spaces are free and open to the public year-round from dawn to dusk.

Donations made during GiveBig directly support our salmon research, restoration, and education programs around the Hood Canal watershed!
