September 6th - 7th - 8th, 2006 Dear Volunteers:

Mark your calendars! The 10th Idaho Salmon & Steelhead Days is just around the corner. Your help is needed to make this event possible.

What is Idaho Salmon & Steelhead Days? Salmon Days celebrates the biology, history, economic and cultural significance of salmon and steelhead. During the three day event, as many as 2,500 fifth graders participate in hands-on outdoor activities. This is where we need most of our volunteers. For the general public, a salmon barbecue and several outdoor educational activities will take place Wednesday evening. All events are held at the Idaho Fish & Game at 600 S. Walnut St., Boise.

What should you do if you want to volunteer? Please fill out the enclosed application and return it to the MK Nature Center by Friday, September 1st. If you cannot make this deadline, please call or send your application just in case we still need your help (The sooner the better!!!). Because we are scheduling many volunteers, please understand that we may not be able to accommodate everyone’s wishes to work specific activities. As a thank you for volunteering, you will receive a salmon days t-shirt. T-shirts will be available at the main tent during the event.
