The Search for Noquiklos' Tracks

The Search for Noquiklos' Tracks
Do you believe in Dragons?

Thanks to the Wild Olympic Salmon, the legend of Noquiklos the Dragon lives on.
It was believed that the East Jefferson County peninsula traced the shape of a dragon whose heart is at Chimacum. As we search for the dragon's tracks, we will actually be taken on an educational field trip as we learn about East Jefferson County's hydrologic cycle!

A puzzle with a purpose, this game, Tracking the Dragon, was conceived by Wild Olympic Salmon as a way for people to learn about water: this track was to teach about the effects of water in soil.

There are 12 bronze dragon tracks, which represent a phase of the hydrologic cycle: sedimentary rock, glaciers, clouds, rain, streams, freshwater wetlands, rivers, soil water, groundwater, estuaries, Puget Sound, Hood Canal, and the sea.

Dragon tracks are bronze, about two feet long, and you can make rubbings of them with thin paper and crayon. And so we are attempting to locate the 12 tracks ( actually some are missing, but we are finding the locations where they were so that we can continue the story). Join us on our adventure.

On a kiosk at the Chimacum camp grounds you can see how the peninsula might very well hide the shape of a dragon whose heart is Chimacum. The peninsula is composed of several different watersheds. Our search starts at the Chimacum Creek watershed, at the entrance to the Chimacum camp grounds across the street from Chimacum Schools in the middle of the Chimacum Creek watershed.
