Echology Poetry Walk

July 10, 2021

poem by DL Fowler on blue plaque staked alongside a walking trail

This summer (well, actually now through November), take a poetry walk in Gig Harbor. ECHOLOGY, a project by Jennifer Preston Chushcoff funded by the Gig Harbor Arts Commission, honors the return of chum salmon to the ancient spawning grounds of Donkey Creek.

Poems by Elijah Brambila, Jennifer Preston Chushcoff, DL Fowler, Brett Marlo, Rena Priest, Justin Teerlinck, Josie Emmons Turner, Lydia K. Valentine, and Cathy Warner are staked on placards along the Donkey Creek trail. Additional informative placards are placed in the Harbor History Museum and Austin Estuary Park.

ECHOLOGY culminates at the Donkey Creek Chum Festival in November, where selected poets will read their poems.

Thanks to Rena Priest for the heads up!
