Morse Creek Monitors


WHAT: Stream Surveys with the North Olympic Salmon Coalition  
WHERE: Morse Creek, just east of Port Angeles
WHEN: Weekdays in September: 9am-12:30pm and/or 1-4pm. Volunteer for a partial day, full days, or multiple days!
WHY: The Salmon Coalition will be collecting year 5 post-project monitoring data for the Morse Creek Re-meander Project, which was completed in 2010.

We will be measuring different stream characteristics and habitat features such as pool and riffle lengths, large woody debris, stream depths and pebble sizes. No experience necessary; training will be provided. Volunteers must be comfortable working in water for an extended period of time and navegating uneven terrain.

Please see the attached Morse Creek Volunteer Job Description 2015 for complete information.

RSVP: Email Reed at or call (360) 379-8051 with any questions, or to get on our schedule!
PLEASE BRING: Chest waders and boots (if you don’t have these, we will be able to provide). Please bring plenty of water, snacks and warm clothes.
DIRECTIONS: We will meet at 651 Cottonwood Lane, Port Angeles. Click to see map:

Volunteers can either join us for a morning shift (9-1pm), afternoon shift (1pm-4pm) or all day (9am-4pm). We will need at least 4 volunteers each day, and we request that you be able to join us for at least 2 days because there are protocols that require some training time.  This is one of our favorite events all year – great excuse to spend all day in a beautiful stream!
