With spawning season coming up, it’s a good time to volunteer with the Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery.
The hatchery is the most visited of the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife’s hatcheries, with thousands of visitors every year.
FISH relies on a committed team of docents to provide tours and educate visitors about the salmon in Issaquah Creek. Adult volunteers are needed from September to mid-November.
A training session for prospective volunteers is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 23. The next training session after that is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 6.
Sign up by completing a volunteer interest form.
Training includes a hatchery tour; presentation about the salmon lifecycle; tips about how to interact with students, chaperones and other visitors; and a comprehensive training manual.
