Dedicated volunteers watch for fish on their assigned creeks two times a week from September through December. The information they collect the county know where salmon are spawning in our streams, and sometimes where barriers exist to salmon migration. Volunteers act as "eyes and ears" in the watersheds and give us the county a heads up when things go awry in our neighborhood creeks. Find out more about our program, including how to identify salmon in your neighborhood, by exploring the King County website.
If you would like to see potential watch sites established in your area, you can use our site mapper to help find a site before the training. You don't have to -- we can help you pick a site at the training session.
