Salmon Recovery ConferenceHosted by the Salmon Recovery Funding Board of the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office, the biennial Salmon Recovery Conference will be held May 14-15, 2013, at the Vancouver Conference Center in Vancouver, Wash. More than 500 attendees are expected to attend the two-day conference, which focuses on building better salmon recovery projects.

One great way for students to get involved and attend the conference is as a volunteer with the Salmon Recovery Funding Board.

As a student volunteer, you’ll get to learn about issues, projects and up-to-minute methods in Pacific Northwest salmon recovery; connect one-on-one with salmon recovery practitioners and policymakers from Oregon and Washington; build your resume and professional network, and also get reimbursed for your student registration fee ($75) by working 4-6 hours at the conference!

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 29, so learn more about the work you’d do as a student volunteer and see if you’re interested!
