Salmon Watch is returning! Thanks to widespread community and partner support, Salmon Watch is returning for a full season this fall. The Salmon Watch Program, created by Oregon Trout in 1993 connects students with creeks and rivers through a program that focuses on hands-on activities centered around Salmon. The Rogue Basin program focuses on a field day, where the students complete a number of activities focus on salmon biology/salmon life cycles, water quality, macro invertebrates, and riparian systems in the field by a local creek or river. Local experts including professional fish biologists, hydrologists, botanists, educators, and college students participate in the program and share their knowledge and experience by teaching programs the field days.
We are recruiting volunteer and paid instructors for the program and schools to participate. We anticipate offering at least 15 field days at locations through the Middle Rogue Watershed including Bear Creek Park, McGregor Park, and Valley of the Rogue State Park.
