The Salmon Trash Sculpture depicts how trash and poor water quality impacts the food chain. The 18-foot artwork was created by welding students at Puget Sound Skills Center to┬árepresent the different kinds of marine debris that wash up on Seahurst’s beach throughout the year. It also showcases how marine animals are often impacted negatively by eating human trash, such as plastics, that float in our waters. The hope is to reveal how trash found in our watersheds affect both the quality of our oceans and the creatures who live in them, including ourselves.

The salmon’s belly is filled with debris removed from Seahurst Park by ESC volunteers. Come admire the ingenuity of local students or add to it during our spring or fall cleanups. Check our public events page to join in!
