Snoqualmie Watershed Forum logoThe Snoqualmie Watershed Forum that oversees local salmon recovery work has an open seat for a resident of unincorporated King County in the Snoqualmie or South Fork Skykomish basin. Applications are due Feb. 18 for the four-year appointed position.

This is an opportunity for a King County Council District 3 resident to join the group that is learning about and making a difference for salmon, salmon habitat, and watershed health in the Snoqualmie and Skykomish basins, as part of the larger coordinated salmon recovery effort spanning Puget Sound.

Interested individuals should have an interest in, or knowledge of, habitat restoration, conservation, and watershed management, or experience in environmental stewardship.

The Snoqualmie Watershed Forum is a partnership between King County, the cities of Carnation, Duvall, North Bend, and Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Tribe, Tulalip Tribes, and the Town of Skykomish. Other members include local conservation non-profits, local residents, and a representative from the King Conservation District.

“As a Snoqualmie Watershed Forum member, I have been privileged to contribute to the ongoing efforts to restore Snoqualmie River habitat and bring back more salmon,” said Rick Shaffer, City of Duvall Councilmember. “Our group deeply cares about the environment and values diverse perspectives. I encourage farmers and other residents who share the love of the Snoqualmie Valley and its fish to apply.”

The Watershed Forum works to enact the Snohomish River Basin Salmon Recovery Plan, including the Snoqualmie and Tolt rivers in King County – some of the most productive salmon streams in the region.

Work includes coordinating policies and regulations across numerous jurisdictions within the watershed and helping fund environmental restoration and protection projects in partnership with the King Conservation District.

The position is appointed by the King County Executive and the commitment includes six, bi-monthly meetings per year, both in person and virtual, and field trips to help guide decisions for improving watershed health and salmon habitat.

King County is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and encourages residents representing our diverse community to apply. For more details and to apply, visit the Snoqualmie Watershed Forum’s website,
