Community Program Intern

NSEA educates, inspires, and engages the community to take action to keep wild salmon here for future generations. Achieving our mission requires the collective work, involvement, and commitment of our community.  At NSEA we work every day to expand the consciousness of our local community to include our streams and the salmon that do and could inhabit them. We are dedicated to providing Whatcom County residents with hands-on experience in restoration and the tools to act as stewards to salmon habitat. We believe that when we begin to understand ourselves as citizens of our watersheds, the vision of sustainable wild salmon runs can become a reality. Our growing community of volunteers, students, and donors provide momentum as we work together to ensure that Whatcom County will be home to wild salmon for generations to come. For more information, please visit our webpage: www.n-sea.org.
