Combine two special interests into one fun day. This train ride departs from Minam, taking passengers down the Wallowa River, then up the Grande Ronde to Lookingglass Creek and Palmer Junction. En route, a fisheries expert talks about anadromous fish. At Palmer Junctin, passengers board a bus for a two mile trip to the Lookingglass Fish Hatchery. A guided tour of the hatchery informs participants about the Chinook
salmon recovery program. You’ll see how they collect eggs from adult salmon and raise juveniles for release in area rivers and streams. You will gain a whole new perspective on these beautiful rivers and the wildlife they nurture. Lunch is served on the lawn at the hatchery. Board the bus for the ride back to the train and the return trip to Minam.

Miles traveled = 27.

Adults = $70 / Seniors 60+ = $65 / Youth, 3 to 16 = $35 (kids under 3 ride for free!)
