Hoh Tribe's Pride and Joy

This idyllic pond is actually an overwintering habitat for young fish at the Hoh Tribe's hatchery along Chalaat Creek in Washington State. The tribe made $218,000 of improvements in 2009 thanks to a grant from the Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund and is starting to see results from a 2.5-mile extension to the creek's salmon run, among other new features. Although tribal leaders and state environmental officials are watching for diesel seepage from a February 23 fuel truck spill, the site remains pristine for now.
