NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: Stream Team is seeking volunteers for the 2013 Salmon Watcher Program. Bellevue's training is September 11 from 7-9 p.m. in the Council Chambers of City Hall. See details.
Stream Team volunteers gather important information about Bellevue’s streams, lakes and wetlands and help improve the city’s fish and wildlife habitat in a variety of ways:
- Salmon Watcher: monitor local streams for salmon returning in the fall, visiting a site for 15 minutes twice a week from September through December and reporting when, where and what type of salmon are sighted. Attend two-hour workshop in September.
- Peamouth Patrol: check local streams for 15 minutes twice a week from mid-April through May. Record spawning times and use of Bellevue streams. Attend one-hour workshop in April.
- Earth Day/Arbor Day: Plant native plants near streams and in wetlands.
- Collect insect samples from Bellevue streams for water quality monitoring.
