Salmon Docent Training is for people who want to learn about salmon habitat, life cycle, and species in the Puget Sound. Ecologically, traditionally, and commercially important, salmon are iconic in our region and influence much of how we manage our waters and landscape. Salmon experts will share their varied and extensive experience and knowledge of issues affecting our local salmon, and cover topics such as:
- Salmon habitat
- Salmon life cycle
- Species management in the Salish Sea
After the training, we will provide and connect you with opportunities to volunteer around Kitsap County. Salmon Docent volunteer events include working with school children on field trips to teach them about streams and salmon, and sharing your knowledge with the public at Kitsap Salmon Tours as a streamside docent.
