Help spot salmon along Johnson Creek


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:

Coho salmon in Crystal Springs creekSalmon 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 or call 503-652-7477. Please indicate if you are signing up with your own survey partner.
