Volunteers needed for hatchery fin clipping

April 30, 2013

CHARLESTON, Ore. – Volunteers are needed for the first annual Noble Creek Hatchery fin clipping event on Saturday, May 11. No experience is required and everyone is welcome.

There will be training, coffee and doughnuts at 8 a.m. Fin clipping begins at 9 a.m. and should finish about 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided to all volunteers.

Coos River STEP Association operates Noble Creek Hatchery, raising salmon supplied by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Young salmon are released into Noble Creek, a tributary to Isthmus Slough and part of the Coos Bay estuary.

The hatchery is located at 93638 Green Acres Lane in Coos Bay. To get there from Coos Bay, take Highway 42 and turn east onto Green Acres Lane into the community of Green Acres. Drive about one mile and watch for signs at the hatchery.
