Help students learn about salmon migration

Volunteers are sought to serve as docents for the Kennedy Creek Salmon Trail, which serves as an outdoor salmon biology classroom for students during the fall chum salmon migra-tion.

This year’s volunteer training is set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 23. Each year, more than 40 volunteer docents spend about 600 hours answering questions about the salmon migration along the trail, which is open to the public every weekend day in November, on Veterans Day and on the day after Thanksgiving.

On weekdays, volunteers at the trail near the Thurston-Mason county line work with school groups and classes ranging from preschool through college.
