Volunteers are needed to help with the annualÂ Community Salmon Investigation for Highline (aka “CSI: Highline”), whichÂ starts Oct. 1. “We are looking for adventurous volunteers to wade Miller and Walker Creeks through the dark days of winter to count spawning salmon and collect data on dead salmon,” said Elissa Ostergaard,Â Miller-Walker Creek Steward. No experience is needed. “I expect many of the volunteers from last year to return, but would like to reach out to college students and residents who may not have heard of the program before,” Elissa added. Please sign up for the training workshop onÂ Oct. 1Â to participate:
