Host a Work Party

A great way to support the hatchery and build camaraderie among your team members is to participate in a work party. A group of 10+ volunteers from your organization can help with a wide range of outdoor activities. Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) hosted 14 work groups in 2023 with 280 volunteers logging 1,120 hours for habitat restoration projects. This was a huge help and we are very grateful to the companies and organizations that participated.
