Volunteer for the 2015 "electrofishing" survey. Every year, thousands of fish are collected during the six day "electrofishing" survey. Fishes are identified, weighed, measured, and released back into the river. The data collected is vital to ongoing management efforts and is impossible to obtain without the aid of public volunteers. Volunteers participate in the capture, transport and release of surveyed fishes as well as set-up and tear-down of nets and applicable equipment. Volunteers should be at least 18 years of age, in good physical condition and able to commit at least 6 hours of time to our endeavor. The management program provides all necessary gear and adheres to standard safety protocols. This years "electrofishing" dates are:
November 12 - Greenbelt
November 13 - Wildwood
November 14 - Avocado Boulder Channel
November 17 - Avocado Side Channel
November 18 - Alta
November 19 - Winton (FULL)
To volunteer for one of the "electrofishing" days contact Heidi Isner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
