You can help the Johnson Creek Watershed Council document the distribution of salmon species through Johnson Creek.
No experience is necessary! Training is provided at the orientation session:
Salmon Surveyor Orientation
Thursday, October 15th, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
(see more details and a flyer here)
Biologists from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and watershed council staff will provide training and answer questions. Light refreshments provided.
How the surveys work: Volunteers will walk selected sections of Johnson Creek in pairs a minimum of one weekend between October 17th and December 12th, searching for salmon and evidence of spawning. Waders and necessary equipment are provided. Allow 2-3 hours per survey.
Volunteer surveyors will walk directly in the stream during winter flows, which can be difficult. Volunteers must be sure-footed, and have full mobility to participate in this activity.
RSVP required for training. Contact Danielle at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-652-7477. Please indicate if you are signing up with your own survey partner.
