The Pacific Coast Salmon Coalition (PCSC) group along with the WDFW recently took summer Coho salmon from the Sol Duc Hatchery holding ponds to be filleted by the Salmon Coalition volunteers for distribution to the Forks Food Bank and also used for enhancement programs on Forks area streams.

PCSC is a grassroots, nonprofit volunteer-based organization whose mission is to be actively involved in local volunteer-based habitat restoration in order to achieve a healthy salmon resource within our region.
