The waterfall along Mitchell Creek that, without the fish pass, prevents fish from getting up stream.

Family and friends of John Pickens, as well as members of the United States Forest Service and Student Conservation Association, gathered on Kupreanof Island to honor the late Pickens and the work done to rebuild the Mitchell Creek fish pass on Saturday.

The USFS has been planning this event since last year, but only in February did it start to get some traction, said Eric Castro, a biologist with the USFS and one of the main coordinators of the event. Approximately 40 people were provided transportation to Kupreanof Island and then an additional 9 miles to the construction site.
