* FFF Lahontan Trout Recovery-Summer 2015
June - September 2015 / Silver and Slinkard Creeks, CA
Volunteers are needed this coming summer for a landmark conservation project in the Eastern Sierras. Take part in the restoration of Silver and Slinkard Creeks as habitat is returned to the region's majestic native fish, the Lahontan cutthroat trout. This project will occur from late June through September.
Volunteers will work in conjunction with paid interns to clear brush around both waterways, as well as assist in the removal of the invasive brook trout. Experience with hand and power tools will be particularly valuable. Participants will be asked to arrive on a Thursday and contribute through the weekend.
The project is a joint effort of a consortium of the region's fly fishing and conservation groups, including the Southwest Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers, Cal Trout, Trout Unlimited, California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Please join us in this daunting yet rewarding undertaking, and in the process learn more about this coveted species and habitat. For more information, contact Jack Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org or 805-966-7773.
