Help identify salmon species

December 6, 2013 

The Nisqually Stream Stewards Program will hold training Saturday for volunteers to help monitor streams within the Nisqually River watershed during salmon spawning season. Volunteers will be trained to identify salmon species so they can count spawning adult salmon twice a week.

The training will be held 9 a.m.-noon at the Nisqually Tribe Natural Resources Department’s conference room, 12501 Yelm Highway SE, Olympia.

Information collected by volunteer salmon watchers helps the Nisqually Tribe’s natural resources staff identify where and when salmon are spawning in area streams and creeks. This information may help determine where to focus salmon recovery protection and restoration efforts in the future.

To register for the training or to get directions, contact Don Perry at 360-438-8687, Ext. 2143 or
