Salmon Watcher, a multi-jurisdictional effort focused on protecting Pacific Northwest salmon and educating the public, is looking for volunteers.
The volunteers watch streams for spawning salmon in King and Snohomish counties, mainly within the Lake Washington Watershed.
Training teaches volunteers how salmon identification and what affects them in their habitat.
There are four training sessions, including 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, at the Renton Community Center 1717 Maple Valley Highway.
There are several locations in the Renton area where the public can view salmon, including the downtown Renton Library, Cedar River Park, Riverview Park, and Cavanaugh Pond.
