Volunteer to teach Salmon Watch this fall!

Help teach Oregon’s youth about salmon and watersheds with The Freshwater Trust's Salmon Watch program, an award-winning education program that centers on streamside field trips to view spawning salmon.

You don’t need to be an expert in water education, but simply have a desire to learn and a passion for teaching and getting outside!

Adult volunteers attend a free half-day training workshop in August or September to learn more about water quality, aquatic insects, riparian zones and working with kids.

Then, in the fall, they’ll become “o-fish-ial” volunteer instructors, giving them the chance to share their knowledge with middle and high school students on a weekday field trip.

Field trips usually begin around 9 a.m. and conclude between 1 and 2 p.m. Travel time to field trip sites averages an hour.
