See kokanee salmon at Strawberry

Sep 20 2011 - 3:56pm

WASATCH COUNTY -- Bright red kokanee salmon have started to swim up some of the tributaries to Strawberry Reservoir. The salmon make this journey as part of their annual spawning run.

You can see hundreds of these salmon -- and possibly other wildlife, too -- at the annual Strawberry Valley Wildlife Festival.

The festival will be held Sept. 24 at the U.S. Forest Service visitor center at Strawberry Reservoir. The visitor center is along U.S. Highway 40, about 20 miles southeast of Heber City.

The festival is free. It runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Friends of Strawberry Valley host the festival every September amid the valley's beauty and changing fall colors.
