How can you help save salmon and increase your community's stewardship approach to salmon recovery? By volunteering with the Lower Columbia Fish Enhancement Group! Salmon recovery will not succeed without an educated and involved community. How can you help? See below…


Volunteer Planters at Whittle Creek Project Site, Oct 2004Whether you are interested in helping with specific projects (carcass throwing, water quality monitoring, or planting events, to name just a few), or more general office /administrative assistance (technology support, fundraising or membership drives, mass mailings), we need your help! Activities occur throughout SW Washington (Wahkiakum, Lewis, Clark, Skamania, and Cowlitz Counties), and as we are a volunteer-based group, your individual support is very important to us. 

Volunteers are the backbone of the LCFEG. We provide opportunities for such hands-on activities as planting trees at a stream restoration site, counting salmon returning to a restoration site, assisting with education presentations and events and more. However, volunteer activities certainly aren't limited to those activities. What can you do? Chances are LCFEG can use your services….

Why is the LCFEG Asking for Your Financial Support? 1) Because government grants for habitat enhancement, education/outreach and organizational expansion are becoming increasingly scarce. 2) Because the LCFEG anticipates an onslaught of new projects soon, with the recent completion of the Lower Columbia Fish Recovery Board's (Lead Entity) Salmon Recovery Plan for Southwest Washington [LCFRB 2004]. 3) Because additional sources of income are currently needed for public outreach/education efforts and increased organizational infrastructure to maintain our "managed volunteer concept" and engage the help and support our local communities. 

What are the benefits of making a financial contribution to our organization? 1) Your donation will be tax deductible; 2) Sports fishing helps support the local economy and is dependent on there being viable salmon and steelhead runs; 3) It is good public relations (as a donor, your company's name will appear in our newsletter, website, and other publications); 4) You'll be supporting your community.
