Environmental Education for Salmon Recovery
 
 
 
Sound Salmon Solutions (SSS) is one of fourteen Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups (RFEGs) created in 1990 by the Washington State Legislature to work at the community level to engage citizen volunteers and landowners in the state's salmon enhancement efforts. SSS is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to ensure the future of healthy salmon runs in the Stillaguamish and Snohomish River Basins and Island County Watersheds through connecting people with their watersheds. Habitat, including water quality, is the major limiting factor to healthy, sustainable salmon populations. The Environmental Education program serves to restore and enhance aquatic habitat and water quality within our community through fostering environmental stewardship. The program’s goals are to enhance public understanding and awareness of the importance of healthy watersheds and salmon conservation by drawing links between human actions now and their immediate and future ecological impacts. Environmental stewardship is fostered through engaging youth in project-based experiential science classes and engaging youth and community volunteers in on-the-ground habitat restoration. This position is contingent on funding through the Washington Service Corps Program. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.
