 We’re hiring for a new Salmon in the Classroom Coordinator!

Do you love seeing students’ eyes light up when they realize their passion for science? Do you want to share your love of streams and salmon with local youth? Are you a fish whisperer? Join our talented education team and bring science to life as the Salmon in the Classroom Coordinator.

Salmon in the Classroom (SITC) is an educational program that helps about 50 classrooms in Clark County to raise and release coho salmon. It teaches about the unique life cycle, habitat requirements, and significance of salmon to the Pacific Northwest. SITC was created by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and is funded by Clark Public Utilities. Coordination requires excellent problem solving, clear communication, planning, management/delegation, interpersonal, and organization skills.

If you are passionate about the environment, enjoy working outdoors, connecting students to nature and salmon through education, and want to leave a legacy for generations to come, we encourage you to apply!
