This Friday, you get a chance to eat some wild baked Salmon at Ocean Beach, at about 6:30pm, when SalmonAid 2009 kicks off its awareness-building campaign.
The full festival happens this weekend (Saturday & Sunday, June 20-21) at Jack London Square in Oakland.
What do the festival organizers want you to be aware of?
- Wild salmon populations have declined drastically, especially in California. Rivers and streams that were former spawning grounds (like the Sacramento and Klamath rivers) have been diverted, drained, or buried due to dams, silt, and other things.
