Volunteers sought to help salmon

SEATTLE -- Citizens interested in aiding stream and salmon restoration efforts are invited to attend a Volunteer Salmon Enhancement Conference here May 2.

The free conference, hosted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups Program, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Campus, 7600 Sandpoint Way.

The event will include several workshops teaching citizens how to get involved in salmon restoration.

Members of the Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups will be available to meet the public and accept new members. The 12 groups are non-profit organizations established by the Legislature to involve citizen volunteers in salmon enhancement activities. Since their inception in 1990, these volunteer groups have completed hundreds of salmon enhancement projects statewide.

Also on hand will be representatives of Washington Trout's Institute for Field Studies who will be conducting workshops to help volunteers identify the skills needed to restore salmon streams.
