Volunteers Needed for Brook Trout Conservation Project

Groups audience 
Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 - 12:00pm to Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 - 3:30pm



It's once again time to recover our Stream Temperature Loggers! Volunteers will be retrieving the (17) loggers deployed last spring as part of the Upper Gunpowder Watershed Brook Trout Conservation Partnership.


This Saturday (11.2.19) from 12:00 pm to 3:30 pm.


Please join us if you can and if you know anyone who may like to help please invite them along too. The more volunteers we have, the faster we complete our task.



What to Bring:
* Waders or hip boots, hat, weather specific clothing, sunscreen, etc. (Dress like you're going fishing!)
* A Smartphone (for Google Maps and the camera)
* A navigation device (smartphone, GPS, road map, homing pigeon, trail of breadcrumbs, a decent sense of direction, etc.)
* A notepad and pen
* Work gloves
* Water and snacks necessary for an afternoon in the field

Where to meet:

A Field Operations office will be setup for the day at Christmas Tree Park in Manchester, MD. This is where we'll meet to separate into crews, assign logger locations, and distribute equipment for logger recovery. Please plan to be here by noon on Saturday, 11.2.


Christmas Tree Park - 3383 Christmas Tree Lane, Manchester, MD 21102 -
