Squaxin NR Staff Speaks to Stream Team Salmon Stewards

On the evening of Thursday September 11th, Squaxin Natural Resources staff spoke at an Advanced Salmon Stewards Training.  Each year Thurston County Stream Team recruits volunteers to be trained as Salmon Stewards and stand at the 5th Ave Bridge/Tumwater Falls to answer questions from the general public about the returning adult fall Chinook.

The training started out with a talk from Larry Phillips, fish biologist with WDFW.  His talk focused on Tumwater Falls Hatchery and Fall Chinook forecast.
