Join us as we focus on learning more about and cleaning up Bear Creek as part of the Adopt-A-River Program. Throughout the year there are opportunities to volunteer to clean -up trash along Bear Creek (April and September), participate in activities including Salmon Watch (Fall), and the Bear Creek Fall Festival.
As students go back to school and Salmon return to the Rogue Basin, the Salmon Watch Program also returns. Salmon Watch connect students with local streams and rivers by organizing field trips for schools. On the field trips, students learn about watershed health and stewardship from the salmon’s perspective. Classes are taught on Salmon biology, water quality, macro invertebrates, and riparian areas. The classes are taught by local experts, former teachers, and trained instructors.
We are currently recruiting volunteer and contracted instructors for the program. We are also in the process of scheduling schools for the available field days. For information please contact Greg Stabach at the Rogue Valley Council of Governments.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
