The Nisqually Stream Stewards Program seeks volunteers to help monitor streams within the Nisqually River watershed during salmon spawning season.
“Salmon watchers are really the eyes and ears of salmon recovery. This is how community involvement in salmon recovery is helping to bring salmon back,” David Troutt, natural resources director for the tribe, said in a news release.
“Without these volunteers, there is no way that we could keep a close eye on every stream in the Nisqually River watershed.”
Volunteers will be trained to identify salmon species so they can twice a week count spawning adult salmon. The training will be held from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday in the Nisqually Natural Resources conference room, 12501 Yelm Highway SE, Olympia.
A tour of the tribe’s salmon weir on the Nisqually River will be held from noon-1 p.m.
