Yakima River Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited in collaboration with WDFW has been investigating and monitoring the habitat and status of the westslope cutthroat trout in the Teanaway watershed for the last 3 years. We are looking for interested volunteers to help with the community science data collection for this important work. This is a wonderful way to get out and enjoy the beautiful Teanaway river watershed. You will be participating in a fun conservation project that will help give important data and information on the health and status of the westslope cutthroat trout living in this river; and contribute to the management of this fish and its watershed. Be a part of something great and have fun in the Teanaway!! No skills for this work are required, just a willingness to be trained and get your boots wet!
You will need a pair of wading boots/shoes and either waders or something you don't mind getting wet. Bring water, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and anything else you would typically need when working outside. The goal of this training is to develop several teams of 3 people each, that can then go out and collect the data for this conservation project. We will have sign up sheets after the training; days and times will vary depending on availability of a leader to join teams. We will work with volunteers to coordinate the best plan for all.
We will meet at the 29 Pines Campground in the Teanaway Community Forrest to the left of the main Kiosk where you enter. A Discover Pass is required for Parking.
Training Time: 9:00am - Noon.
