The Fish Rescue has "usually" been scheduled between 8am-4pm, but as we have learned, conditions change quickly and we will inform you of any/all updates. What is your relative availability?
Mornings (8am - 12pm)
Afternoons (12pm - 4pm)
Evenings (4pm - dark)
There are three types of volunteer duties. Do you have a preference? Note: this is just a preference. The health of the fish comes first and we all must yield to the professionals in charge.
Fish "catcher" which requires isolated waders AND skilled knowledge of handling fish
Fish "carrier" which requires traction hiking boots and ability to carry heavy buckets of water
Fish "counter" which requires waders, the ability to count, and knowledge of fish species
We will be providing snacks and lunch. Do you have any dietary restrictions we need to consider?
