University of Southern Maine Annual Migratory Fish Count Volunteer Sign-Up
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the fourth season of the annual University of Southern Maine's Migratory Fish Count, which Presumpscot Regional Land Trust is a partner. Volunteers are needed to help steward and monitor the alewife migration from Casco Bay up the Presumpscot River, through Mill Brook, and into Highland Lake. The alewife reproduce in Highland Lake and then migrate back out to the ocean. This is the largest and most productive alewife run in Casco Bay.

WHEN: Volunteers are needed to count the spring fish migration, which is typically May to mid-June. Count slots are 30-minutes long during 4 designated time slots each day. Great bird and other wildlife activity can be seen while counting.

WHERE: Westbrook at the Highland/Mill Brook Dam.

HOW: Visually count fish, a short training will be provided.

WHO: The USM Environmental Science and Policy Department is coordinating the project and the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust is a partner.

If you are interested please sign-up below and we will follow up with you soon on training and volunteer sign-up times.
