County calls for nominations for annual salmon recovery awards

Vancouver, WA – The Sammy Awards are Clark County’s answer to the Oscars, Emmys, and Grammys, except that our concern is less with the glitter of showbiz and more with the sparkle of wild salmon in our waterways. The Sammys recognize individuals, groups, organizations, or projects for outstanding contributions to salmon recovery in Clark County.

Do you know someone who deserves a Sammy? We would love to hear from you!

Potential Sammy Award nominees might involve the following:

Habitat restoration projects
Education and outreach efforts
Grassroots, neighborhood association or school projects
A business or organization implementing salmon-friendly or best management practices
Special or lifetime achievements for individuals committed to salmon recovery
Other volunteer activities

Nomination forms can be found on the Clark County ESA Web site:, or you may request a form by calling 397-2022, ext. 2. The deadline for nominations is Friday, March 13. Winners will be announced during a special event planned for June 11, with details to be announced.
