Spot the spawners in the Lake Washington/Cedar/Sammamish Watershed and Green/Duwamish Watershed this fall!
Warm waters and low flows have made 2015 a tough year for salmon as they work to return to streams and rivers around Puget Sound this fall. Watch for these natural beauties at viewing sites listed here – and cheer them on if you see them!Salmon SEEson calendar
Volunteer to be a Salmon Watcher
Attend one of four trainings in September to become a volunteer Salmon Watcher. Dedicated volunteers watch for fish on their assigned creeks two times a week from September through December. The information collected helps us know where salmon are spawning in our streams, and sometimes where barriers exist to salmon migration. Trainings are Tuesday, September 15, Bellevue City Hall; Wednesday, September 16, Bothell at the Northshore Senior Center; Tuesday, September 22, Renton City Hall; and Wednesday, September 30, Seattle at Carkeek Environmental Learning Center.
