In 1990, the Washington State Legislature created the Regional Fisheries Enhancement Group Program to involve local communities, citizen volunteers, and landowners in the state's salmon recovery efforts.
The 14 Regional Fisheries Enhancement Groups (RFEGs) share the unique role of working within their own communities across the state to recover salmon. The RFEGs create dynamic partnerships with local, state and federal agencies, Native American tribes, local businesses, community members, and landowners. CCFEG was incorporated in 2000, and works on watersheds in Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan and Ferry Counties.
Volunteers with the RFEG program can learn about salmon habitat, plant trees, count returning salmon, perform habitat assessments, conduct water quality monitoring, teach others about salmon habitat, and much more. If you would like to learn more about how you can help salmon through the RFEG program please give us a call at (509) 888-7268 or email us at Jason@ccfeg.org.
