It’s that time of year again! Are you looking for a volunteer activity that engages middle and high school students in ecological education in a fun hands-on, field-based setting? Or, are you a middle or high school teacher interested in participating in Salmon Watch? The Eugene-Springfield Salmon Watch Program is actively seeking volunteer educators to teach local students about salmon and watershed ecology. In order to participate, volunteers are encouraged to attend one of two short training sessions on Tuesday, August 30th, 2016 starting at 3pm or 5pm at the River House Community Center, Eugene, Oregon.*
This training session will provide an overview of the curriculum, hands-on demonstrations of the field trip station activities to include: fish biology, water quality, macroinvertebrates and riparian area. Following the completion of this training, each volunteer educator will have the opportunity to sign up for Salmon Watch field trip volunteer opportunities.
