Salmon Watch Field Trips: Each participating class takes an all-day field trip in September, October or November to one of several beautiful salmon spawning sites in Mt. Hood National Forest, Columbia River Gorge or Mid-Coast Range. Four volunteer educators accompany each field trip (avg. 8:1 instructor-student ratio) to engage students in the following study areas:
- Salmon Biology
- Macroinvertebrate Identification
- Water Quality Monitoring
- Riparian Zone Observation

No previous experience or knowledge related to salmon conservation is required!

We do require that all new volunteer educators attend one half-day training session prior to accompanying a field trip. On the application form you can select a training on August 13th or September 10th, to be held at Dabney State Recreation Area on the Sandy River (approx. 13 miles south of I-84/Troutdale).
