The Hood Canal Steelhead Project, which is entering its seventh year, is getting ready to start again, and we’re looking for volunteers! Volunteers help with daily trap checks and fish sampling at each of the trap sites, Tahuya, Dewatto and Little Quilcene Rivers. We have days beginning April 1st through May 31st. This is a great opportunity to get out to the rivers and handle juvenile salmon. Volunteers will be working with a research intern or staff member. Volunteers for trap checks will meet at the Salmon Center at 9 a.m. During the early and late parts of the season, sampling generally lasts from 9 am to about 1 pm. Mid-season (during peak smolt outmigration), daily sampling may take longer.
If you are interested in the opportunity to install a trap and/or handle and sample juvenile salmon, please contact Seth at firstname.lastname@example.org, 360-275-3575 x12 to sign up.
