21-22 Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group Env. Educator
The Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, at the Salmon Center, strives to deepen the connection between land, people, and salmon through restoration, education, and research. Environmental Educators will support the organization by adding depth to the education team, and expanding breadth of stewardship actions, further increasing healthy salmon populations and improved native species biodiversity in the Hood Canal Watershed. While working on education projects, members will be implementing in-class programs in the majority of Mason County schools. Educators will also be joining local partners to support the Students in the Watershed program, Explore the Fjord and Farm Steward Summer camps, and carrying out fieldtrips and site visits around the Theler Wetlands and Salmon Center properties. The Salmon Center hopes to further increase its public educational offerings throughout the year, and educators will lead the charge in creating interpretive programs for the public. In stewardship roles, members will restore critical salmon habitat on Hood Canal streams through ecological resoration activites. Educators will lead the installation of native plants in winter months, through volunteer planting organization, site prep and nursery maintenance. Members will also conduct stewardship activities at existing planting sites, including the removal of invasive species, browse protection, and supplemental planting both on site and on active restoration properties. We anticipate to hold interviews for the position throughout the early summer, and look to hire 2 new members in the fall. If you have questions, please contact Heather Hamilton at
