The City of Redmond seeks volunteers to help track salmon populations. Volunteers monitor local streams, searching for adult salmon, for 15 minutes twice a week while salmon are running (usually September to mid-December).
Volunteers count the number and type of salmon spotted at a specific location. This information is pooled with data gathered from other volunteers throughout the county and used to help us understand more about these fish and our efforts to protect them.
Training is provided. All trainings are from 7 to 9pm and will be held on the following dates in the following cities:
- Wednesday, Sept. 15: Bellevue
- Thursday, Sept. 16: Woodinville
- Wednesday, Sept. 29: Seattle
