Neah-Kah-Nie High school students are helping with a community effort to harvest, process and can hatchery-raised coho salmon from Waterhouse Falls fish trap on the north fork of the Nehalem River. This year, 741 fish have been harvested resulting in 4,293 71/2 ounce cans of salmon.
Brad Gerards' Graphics class has taken on the assignment of designing labels for the cans with the specific required information. The North County Food Bank Board of Directors as well as President, Imie Camelli, will choose from seven designs to use as the label for the cans.
Once the design is chosen and reproduced, Jim Cox’s volunteer group, The Leos, will be busy with a work day to affix the labels to the cans and then deliver them to the North County Food Bank. Way to go, Pirates!
