    This environmental/art project invites everyone in the community to help raise awareness of the salmon returning to our local streams after years spent out in the ocean. We will be writing Words of Welcome on fishtail-shaped banners that will be strung along the pedestrian bridges spanning the salmon-bearing streams of Des Moines. We'll have stream maps, selected reading lists on the topic of wild salmon, and posters about the life cycle of salmon as resources. We'll also have samples of different short poetic forms people can use (haiku, couplets, American sentences, limericks, etc.), or folks may just choose to write a short message or create a design on their banner. The strings of fishtail banners will be displayed throughout the month of October, prime time for salmon returning from their ocean journeys.
