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.
