The Story of the Whitehorse Rapids Fishladder

The Whitehorse Rapids Fishladder, the longer wooden fishladder in the world, was built in 1959. In 2009, to mark the 50th anniversary of the ladder, Yukon Energy had a podcast produced to tell the story of the ladder and its significance for the annual Chinook salmon migration. We thought it would be worth posting it again here for those of you who didn't hear it the first time.

We encourage visitors and Yukoners alike to drop by the visitors' centre this month to see the salmon as they travel through the ladder. We are planning a special Appreciation Night next Wednesday, August 17th from 5 to 9 p.m. There'll be children's activities, food and refreshments, great door prizes, and you'll have a chance to see the salmon and learn about their incredible journey from the Bering Sea. Everyone is welcome.
