There are a number of activities at the hatchery that volunteers are able to help with throughout the year.  Without the assistance of volunteers, it would be impossible to achieve many of our objectives as we do not have enough staffing to perform some of the larger tasks.  Below is a list of some of the activities that volunteers can get involved with. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out our Volunteer form. Once you are added to our volunteer list you will get emails when different jobs that we need help with arise. Positions are filled on a first come first serve basis. Some include:

  • Fin clipping
  • Event helpers
  • Fish releases
  • Fish sampling
  • Spawning
  • Hatchery duties (maintenance and infrastructure projects)
  • River seines
