  • September 7: Greenback Cutthroat Trout Channel Survey
    Two or three volunteers needed for Greenback Cutthroat Trout stream survey and flow measurement. September 7 from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM near Long Draw Reservoir. We will carry waders, boots, and equipment in backpacks to a high priority restoration site near Long Draw Reservoir, where we will collect data to be used by researchers at CSU and the USGS to better understand climate change impacts on native cutthroat trout habitat. Bring water and food for 6 hours in the backcountry and be prepared for inclement weather. We need one volunteer that is willing to drive their car to the project site with enough space to carry volunteers and backpacks.

Note of the Day:

With advancing climate change, anglers have a lot to lose if water conditions change drastically in the coming decades. One solution is obviously to reduce the amount of carbon we put into the atmosphere. And one way to do that is through renewable energy.
