Want to be a Salmon Watcher volunteer?
Our dedicated volunteers watch for fish on their assigned creeks two times a week from September through December. The information they collect helps us know where salmon are spawning in our streams, and sometimes where barriers exist to salmon migration. Volunteers act as our "eyes and ears" in the watersheds and give us a heads up when things go awry in our neighborhood creeks. Find out more about our program, including how to identify salmon in your neighborhood, by exploring our site.
Here's what to do
The Salmon Watcher training sessions for 2013 have all concluded. If you'd like to be a Salmon Watcher, put us on your calendar for September 2014! Then check back here next August for training dates.
