Electro-fishing study on Whychus Creek with ODFW and the Forest Service

Friday, September 6th, 2013 - 3:30pm to Saturday, September 7th, 2013 - 12:00am

This is a great opportunity to work with regional biologists to study the Whychus Creek fish community before upcoming restoration work.  We are looking for several volunteers to help with an electro-fishing effort, providing support for a diversity of roles during a long field day.  Volunteers will need to meet ODFW staff in Bend before departing at 8am, or meet the rest of the crew in Sisters at the Ranger Station at 8:30am.  Volunteers would need to bring chest waders, polarized glasses, lunch, water and whatever other personal gear they might need.  Volunteer work will entail carrying in gear, setting up block nets, netting fish, transporting fish and data recording.  Biologists from the Forest Service and ODFW will provide instruction and guide the crews.  This will be a long day, with work expected to occur until 5pm out in the field, and then heading back to town.  If you are interested, please rsvp with Nate Dachtler from the Forest Service (ndachtler@fs.fed.us) and if you need to confirm carpooling from Bend, please contact Erik Moberly (erik.r.moberly@state.or.us)
