Volunteering for the Service

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have more than 38,000 volunteers contributing in excess of 1.4 million hours. More than 100 volunteers in our Pacific Region Fisheries Program contribute over 20,000 hours per year. Our volunteers come from all walks of life. They are passionate people who enjoy the outdoors, want to give back to their communities, and want to spread the word about our Pacific Northwest aquatic resources.

About Our Program

The Pacific Region's Fish Heath Program protects the health of salmon propagated at the region's network of 15 National Fish Hatcheries and tribal partner programs. Our veterinarians and biologists--located in three Fish Health Centers located in Olympia, Washington, Orofino, Idaho, and Willard, Washington--assist partners across the Pacific Northwest with fish health issues and conduct the National Wild Fish Health Survey. Dr. Andrew E. Goodwin manages the program.
