Volunteer with the Cedar River Salmon Journey program

We are currently recruiting volunteer naturalists for the Cedar River Salmon Journey program and would appreciate your help in sharing this volunteer opportunity with your students at UW. They have always been amazing volunteers and we really appreciate your support of CRSJ.

The Cedar River Salmon Journey program helps to educate Puget Sound residents about salmon and watershed health through high quality interpretative programs at salmon viewing locations in the Cedar River Watershed. Naturalists share their love and knowledge of the Cedar River Watershed, the salmon that share the river with us and the everyday actions we can all take to help salmon thrive.

I have attached a flyer with additional information and included a short blurb below which you are welcome to share. Thank you in advance for helping spread awareness of our program and helping us to recruit volunteers, we greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, I am happy to help.

Help teach about salmon and the Cedar River—become a volunteer naturalist!

Share your community treasure! Become a volunteer naturalist on the Cedar River and learn about one of the world’s amazing wildlife migrations, which runs through the heart of Seattle, Renton and on up into Maple Valley! Naturalists will receive 20 hours of training from fish and watershed experts in September. Then they’ll spend three days along the river in October, talking to the public about the spawning salmon and the natural and human history of the Cedar River Watershed.

Sponsors of the program, now entering its 20th year, include the Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Public Utilities, King County Flood Control District, City of Renton, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the WRIA8 Salmon Recovery Council.

Contact Dani Kendall at salmonjourney@seattleaquarium.org or call (206) 792-5851 to sign up. Training starts September 7, 2017.

SAFS in the News: Scientist captures amazing photos of massive Alaskan sockeye salmon run

originally shared on the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences Student Services Blog

SAFS alumnus Jason Ching is featured on the Mother Nature Network:

“If the realms of science and art seems worlds away from each other, you’d be gravely mistaken. After all, when you’re studying the science behind the world around us, how can you not feel inspired by its sublime beauty? That’s why it should come as no surprise to learn that some of society’s most creative and passionate artists also happen to possess brilliant scientific minds.

One such scientist is Jason Ching, a Washington-based researcher who has spent years studying and photographing Bristol Bay’s sockeye salmon populations.”
