Please join us for our annual fall salmon surveys! Survey orientation will be 6-8pm, Thursday October 12th, with training provided by biologists from Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and JCWC staff.

Johnson Creek Watershed Council is documenting the distribution of salmon species through Johnson Creek. Volunteers will walk selected sections of Johnson Creek in pairs for a minimum of two weekends between October 14th and December 16th, searching for salmon and evidence of spawning. Waders and necessary equipment are provided. Surveys take 2-3 hours. Limited space – register below!

Many thanks to our sponsors at the City of Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services (BES), Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODFW), and East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) for making this project possible!

Salmon Orientation Registration 2017

  • Please check at least THREE dates for which you are available; surveyors will complete a minimum of 2 surveys. Expect to conduct the survey in morning or midday; it will take approximately 3 hours, not including transportation time. We will post the finalized survey schedule shortly after Orientation.
  • This survey will involve photographing salmon species and finding GPS latitude/longitude. If you have a smart phone you're willing to bring on the survey we greatly appreciate it (though this isn't required). Note that there may be risk to your equipment because you may be walking in the stream during the surveys, although we will provide Ziplock bags to help protect equipment.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
