Volunteers are needed to help monitor how salmon are doing in our local streams, between October through December, to observe spawning salmon and collect data on dead salmon.

A Community Salmon Investigation for Highline Orientation Workshop will be held on Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Normandy Park City Hall, Council Chambers, 801 SW 174th Street.

“No experience needed! Volunteers only need rain gear and hip waders.”

Volunteers will:

  • Learn to identify spawning salmon
  • Walk sections of Miller and Walker Creeks in waders
  • Monitor adult salmon abundance and assess pre-spawn mortality
