Salmon Surveyors

Welcome Salmon Surveyors!


comm-sci-imageFor the last 6 years, volunteers have surveyed stretches of Johnson Creek from October-December for signs of salmon breeding activity. These surveys have generated invaluable data that have allowed the watershed council to prioritize restoration projects that aid the recovery of salmon. Thank you salmon surveyors for your important work!

Salmon Diaries 2016

Background: What are the Salmon Diaries?
The Salmon Diaries are a public forum created for volunteers helping survey for coho salmon in the fall and winter. Volunteers from the surveys post comments and photos about their experiences wading through five different sections of Johnson Creek looking for salmon from Oct. 22-Dec. 17, 2016. Enjoy the read.
