It is that time of year again. May 16th from 10 am until 2pm. Come join the fun as we release our salmon into the Bay. The students from Casa Grande High School in Petaluma will be bringing 2,000 Chinook Salmon from the Feather River to Blackie's Pasture in Tiburon. The fish will be released at high tide which is around 11:45 a.m. The Tiburon Volunteer Fire Department will on the Barbecue, Brett Boyd and company will be giving us some great tunes, and there will be many information booths from organizations all over Marin that support the salmon.
Please come and join the fun as Tiburon Salmon Institute joins the state wide effort to clean up California's Coast. We will be at Blackie's Pasture in Tiburon on September 20th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. We will be working on the bay waterfront of Richardson Bay. We need all hands on deck to make this beach clean for all animals that share this habitat with us. This is part of a statewide effort going on at beaches across California. There will be a contest for the most unique item found, the most garbage collected, as well as a BBQ at the Bay Model in Sausalito after the clean up.
Tell your friends and wake the neighbors!!!!! The Annual Poster Contest is On! Please make a poster with the "Kiss and Release" theme and we will put in the details on the winning poster of our event. The salmon Kiss and Release event will be advertised all over the Bay Area with your winning poster. You can work it on it with a friend or friends, you can submit more than one entry, it should be on paper that is 11 by 17 and the most important part is to have fun. It is open to students from 1st to 8th Grade.
Thank you to all our supporters who braved the elements to come out and clean up Blackie's Pasture Beach on September 21st. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. Nevertheless, about 20 Brave souls came out in the rain and collected a pile of trash off the beach. This was a very good way for some students to earn their community service hours. TSI always is in need of helping hands. If you would like to volunteer or earn some community service hours, please call me and we can arrange some fun work that will help you give back to our community.
