What was it like to see salmon so thick in the rivers
you could “smell them blocks away”?
What seafoods were harvested on the beach?
What was it like during the heyday
of fishing on the Strait of Juan de Fuca?
“Voices of the Strait”, a documentary by Al Bergstein interviewing people who have lived out here on the Peninsula over the last 50 years will be shown on August 26th 7:30 PM – PT Marine Science Center – On the beach at Fort Worden – Admission Free.
You’ll meet folks like Ray Hunter of Discovery Bay and Orville Campbell who grew up in Port Townsend in the 20s and 30s as they discuss the way they grew up, the changes they’ve seen, what we have lost, and how we might restore it. We will also be showing a short documentary interviewing some of the scuba community on the changes they have seen in the last twenty years. The scuba video was done by local Port Angeles high school graduate Cameron Little and features Sudi Parker and Mike Hensen of Admiralty Dive Shop.
Voices of the Strait is a production of Mountainstone Productions, with sponsorship by the Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles the Puget Sound Partnerships’ ECO Net environmental education group. Please come out to see these short videos, and participate in the questions and answers with a panel of participants, the video production team, and the local groups that helped sponsor the video.
