Greetings Trout Scouts!
As a reminder, the Arroyo Seco Foundation will be hosting a free trout habitat survey workshopthis Sunday.
The workshop will feature Ken Jarrett, a fisheries biologist with Stillwater Sciences, and cover key methods for professional stream assessment. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in river restoration and native fish!
There are still spots left. Please RSVP to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can make it.
Date & Time Sunday, May 20, 9AM – 2PM (includes a lunch break)
Location Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery in Hahamongna Watershed Park (The nursery can be hard to find. Click here for directions.)
Parking and restrooms are available at the nursery. From there we will take a short walk over to the stream channel and learn stream surveying methods for the assessment of native trout habitat. Be prepared for insects and uneven/slippery terrain. Some activities (such are measuring the stream gradient) will be done in the water, and closed toe shoes are required.
What to Bring
• Sun protection
• Sack lunch
• Note-taking materials
• Closed toe shoes (ideally water shoes or rubber boots if you have them)
