Volunteers needed: World Salmon Counsil

The World Salmon Council is a local environmental nonprofit. Our mission is to provide experiential education to students in the Greater Portland area. Through our program Salmon Watch, we provide field trips that use wild salmon as a focal point to foster connections with nature and provide a multidisciplinary outdoor education. We also provide in-class curriculum and facilitate service learning projects, which are centered on community engagement with environmental issues.

Our organization is dependent upon the work of our incredible volunteers, and we are always hoping to expand our program with new volunteer educators. If anyone in your department is interested in becoming involved, the application to become a volunteer educator can be found here:


No experience is necessary as we provide volunteer trainings at the end of the summer. Field trips happen on weekdays during September, October, and November.

If you would like to learn more about us or schedule a tabling or informational meeting, you can contact our program director at rachel@worldsalmoncouncil.org. You can also find out more about us at our website: www.worldsalmoncouncil.org

local family looking for a babysitter

Engaging and Reliable Babysitter Needed, Close-In NE Portland

When: 3pm –6pm, Monday to Friday with some flexibility

Where: Close-in Northeast Portland (Irvington to Woodlawn)

Starts: September 2018

I need someone to pick up my two children (ages 8 and 10) from school and bring them home, which will usually involve a 2.2 mi drive (or possibly bus ride) and sometimes (if going to dad’s house) a two-block walk. Primary responsibilities include: arriving in time for pick-up, driving children home, supervising some light household chores and a little homework, and then relaxing and drawing or holding guinea pigs, going to the park … your choice.

Must be a safe driver with your own car, valid driver’s license, and car insurance.

About us: I’m a single mom with two school-age kids. I work in math education for a local non-profit close to Legacy Emanuel Hospital. My kids will be in Grades 2 and 5. They love art, the library, Minecraft, our cats and guinea pigs, Steven Universe and Teen Titans Go, and reading. I’m trying to be better about limiting screen time and would love a babysitter who would enjoy taking them to the library, talking/listening about Minecraft, and supporting them in their frequent ambitious and spontaneous craft projects.

If interested please call me, at 503-943-9045

Thank you, Martha Ruttle
