Serve as a Salmon Watcher during spawning season
August 30, 2011
Salmon should start returning to local creeks soon to spawn, and King County needs volunteers to help collect information about the fish.
Through the Salmon Watcher Program, the county trains volunteers to identify and record species and numbers of spawning salmon in Lake Washington watershed streams. Lake Sammamish, and Issaquah and Tibbetts creeks, drain into the Lake Washington watershed. The program includes numerous monitoring sites along Issaquah and Tibbetts Creeks.
Prospective volunteers must attend a training session. The county has scheduled training sessions from 7-9 p.m. at:
- Bellevue City Hall, 450 110th Ave. N.E., Sept. 15
- Renton Community Center, 1715 S.E. Maple Valley Highway, Sept. 20
- Woodinville City Hall, 17301 133rd Ave. N.E., Sept. 22
- Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St., Seattle, Oct. 5
