Fall 2022 Salmon Watch Volunteer Sign Up

Sign Up to Volunteer for Salmon Watch at Packsaddle County Park, Gates, Oregon

Trips From September 14-October 13 (No trips the week of October 4-7)

Salmon Watch is a place-based, experiential field trip that introduces students to local watersheds and the salmon that inhabit them. The field trip takes about 4 hours; start and end times listed are approximate. You will receive more exact times as the field trips draw closer.

Map for Packsaddle County Park, which has been cleaned up and is ready for us to use again as our Salmon Watch site.

Volunteers teach one of four lessons on field trips. 

  • Salmon Biology: salmon life cycle, dissection, and cultural importance
  • Macroinvertebrates: collection and identification
  • Water Quality: dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and turbidity 
  • Riparian ecology: riparian functions (habitat, erosion control, shade, and water storage & filtration)

For curriculum, visit the World Salmon Council website or the Linn Benton Salmon Watch website.

REQUIRED BACKGROUND CHECK

All field trip volunteers must complete a background check, it should only take a few minutes. The background check is free, just choose to have Marion SWCD pay OR you can choose to donate the fee.
