Salmon Watchers and Salmon "Seeson"

Salmon Seeson

Fall is here, and salmon are once again making the long trek to spawn in streams and rivers across the Puget Sound region. We encourage Bothellites to take a moment to witness their extraordinary seasonal journey by checking out one of the more than a dozen locations around the area where folks can see fish. Some locations have volunteers on hand to help you spot them and to answer any questions.     

Salmon Watchers

This program helps residents learn about their local salmon, their habitat, and what we can do to help them.  All you have to do is attend a training session and sign up to watch a stream near your home or work. The information is used to assist in making local decisions, finding fish barriers, and detecting spills.    


New Volunteer?

Hopefully you were able to attend our training in September. You must attend a training to receive the necessary information and choose a site.

Returning Volunteer?  

You simply need to watch the refresher video and then contact the Surface Water Program Coordinator to sign up.
You will need to find a site so please view the site mapper and let us know if you need assistance choosing a site that works for you. Complete the liability waiver to the right and send it back to us via email or standard mail to:
