Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To provide experiential education and encounters with Pacific wild salmon to connect students and adults with nature and empower community engagement.
World Salmon Council manages the award-winning Salmon Watch environmental education program in the greater Portland metro and Columbia River Gorge regions. Using salmon as the focal point, Salmon Watch provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary education in the classroom, field study and in-stream observation, and community service learning projects.
For the 2016-17 school year, Salmon Watch will engage more than 2,000 students at 27 middle and high schools.
If we want our youth have scientific and environmental literacy, value their natural heritage, and make informed decisions about their communities as they become adults, we must give them opportunities to understand and relate to the natural world on a personal level.
