Become a Streamside Salmon Docent
Are you interested learning about salmon and sharing your knowledge and experience with others?
Each fall, WSU Kitsap Extension invites salmon experts to share their varied and extensive experience and knowledge of Pacific salmon in our Salmon Docent training. Topics covered include salmon habitat, life cycle, and management in the Salish Sea.
After the training, we provide newly trained Salmon Docents opportunities to pair with experienced docents and share their knowledge and enthusiasm with the community as volunteer stream-side docents at Salmon Tours and other events.
Salmon Docents receive nine hours of training – a combination of classroom field lessons – and a complimentary copy of the Kitsap Salmon Field guide, a 104-page waterproof field guide. Sign up to be notified of the next Salmon Docent training.
