Volunteering for Fish Surveys

Volunteers are periodically needed to assist with fish seining surveys.  Volunteers must be in good physical condition and be able to walk in a stream in waders for several hours and tolerate heat, cold, mosquitoes and sun.  Work involves chasing fish into nets, setting nets, carrying buckets, etc. with instruction provided.  Two to three sites are sampled on a given day and 300 ft of stream are sampled at each site.  We generally work 9am-2pm.  Dates and locations are subject to change so you must let us know you are coming and you will get specific directions.  E-mail Sally (spetrella@therouge.org) if you are interested.
