We need your help! The Schrems West Michigan Chapter of Trout Unlimited was awared a $84,000 grant by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation. This grant will fund an inventory of Kent County’s coldwater streams and the development of a strategic plan for their future mananagement.
Volunteers will be needed throughout the year for temperature logging, data collection, fish shocking and habitat surveying. We will be hosting two P51 training sessions in August that will be necessary for volunteering in the habitat surveying projects.
There is an immediate need for two committed volunteers to survey road crossings and dams. We anticate 20-30 hours of volunteer time over the next six weeks. We will need a minimum of six volunteers for the P51 assessments. The P51 assessments will require one hour of traning. Lastly, if you are interested in electrofishing (aka electroshocking), there will be upcoming opportunities to assist in the near future.
