Volunteer Opportunity

Posted by Stephanie Scott on September 16, 2016 in Conservation, Events, Greenback Recovery, Habitat, Leadership, Native Trout, Press/PR, Projects News, Trout

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for help to stock Rock Creek on September 21 from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm. Volunteers will be meeting in Jefferson CO in between Bailey and Fairplay on 285, but exact location is still being determined.

Volunteers will be packing their backpacks full of Greenback Cutthroat Trout and hiking about 5 miles to stock them in Rock Creek, their new home. This is part of a larger Greenback Recovery effort being led by Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Volunteers will need:

  • Water
  • Hiking Boots (no waders)
  • Lunch
  • Large Pack/Backpack for hauling fish
  • Sunscreen

If you are interested in participating or want more information on this project please contact Stephanie Scott. sscott@tu.org or 720-354-2647. Volunteers who sign up will be given more detailed information about the volunteer day upon sign up.

  1. I would be interested in helping. I was a fish-backpacker on the Dry Gulch shocking crew last week (upper section 5); and I have a good internal frame pack for this kind of work.
    Couple questions though; is the estimated 5 miles one-way or round trip? And, what is the elevation change? I don’t want to commit to a hike beyond my capability.

  2. I will attend the Rock Creek volunteer day on 9-21.
