Linn-Benton Salmon Watch Volunteer Trainings: August 26 and September 11

Our Salmon Watch season is right around the corner and after last year’s COVID-related hiatus, we are eager to return to in-person programming!

This outdoor experiential education program helps 5th and 6th graders explore their watershed through the lens of salmon ecology. Small groups of students rotate through four stations—Water Quality, Riparian Areas, Macroinvertebrates, and Salmon Biology—during the one-day field trips and learn the fundamentals of scientific inquiry from enthusiastic volunteers. You could be one of those volunteers and our upcoming volunteer trainings will help you get prepared!

Whether you are ready to get into the field with young people or interested in learning more about the program and what volunteering looks like, please join one of our upcoming trainings.

More information and registration are available here: https://www.lbsw.org/volunteer/
