Fish Rescue Program

By | conservation & projects
Volunteers are needed to become part of the Fish Rescue Team. Every year thousands of trout and other species of fish which live in the Big Wood River migrate into irrigation diversions and canals never to return to the river. At the end of each irrigation season when the water flows are shut off, the fish become trapped and die. In 2019 we rescued over 8,000 fish, and have rescued over 1,000 fish to date this year. If you want to know more about this program please go to our website http://hemingwaytu.org. Due to the Covid issues we will be using smaller teams this year to provide for the safety and health of those participating. The Rescues often occur with little notification resulting in times and locations changing at the last minute. If you would like to volunteer for this meaningful and fun program please email me a apilgram@cox.net with your email address and phone number. I will put you in a list that gets contacted when we do the rescues. I look forward to hearing from those of you who are interested. Ed Northen: apilgram@cox.net, mobile: 949-246-9372
