McSorley Creek Salmon Survey Orientation

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free, but you will need a state park parking pass to park in the lot.

Volunteer to help count and monitor salmon returning to McSorley Creek. It’s an awesome fishy activity!

Training provided by Trout Unlimited expert John Muramatsu. You will learn about salmon, how to identify the different salmon like coho and chum, and how to collect data on both living and dead salmon. Learn what it means for the salmon, the Saltwater State Park watershed and so much more.

Advance requirement: Contact John Muramatsu soon to reserve your spot at the orientation, and ask any questions at duwamishgreentu@gmail.com. (Volunteers will work as teams of two walking a section of the creek, collecting data. It takes about one hour with a frequency of once a week during October to December.)

The orientation will take place at Saltwater State Park at the “Creek Shelter” in the mid parking lot near the pedestrian trail foot bridge and the Stone Salmon Kiosk. Handouts will be provided. Dress for the weather. Optional: note pad and pen, boots, gloves.
