Volunteer: Salmon Watch
September 15 @ 2:00 am - 7:00 am
Salmon Watch is an award-winning outdoor environmental education program founded in 1993 that brings middle and high school students outdoors to natural stream sites to witness wild salmon spawning and learn about Pacific Northwest ecology. This season, Salmon Watch is hosting over 50 field trips with 21 schools at beautiful Pacific Northwest stream sites, getting over 1,700 students outdoors to connect with and learn about the natural world.
Four volunteer educators teach on each field trip (avg. 7:1 instructor-student ratio), facilitating the field trip learning stations: salmon biology, macroinvertebrate identification, water quality testing, and riparian observation/nature awareness. Anyone can teach on a Salmon Watch field trip. Free training sessions in September teach new volunteers everything you need to know to facilitate the field learning stations.
