Many members volunteer their time and energy at the Dungeness Fish Hatchery in Sequim. Members assist Hatchery employees with all phases of salmon spawning including releases. It's a great way to learn more about the important role that the hatchery program plays in ensuring healthy fisheries. Contact Dave Croonquist at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to get involved.
