Greenback Recovery: Non-native Fish Removal at Rock Creek

Help support Greenback recovery in the Rock Creek watershed by working alongside Colorado Parks and Wildlife and USFS crews to treat and remove non-native trout.  The removal of non-native species is a critical step in restoring these stream habitats and preparing them for Greenback reintroduction.  

Duties: Volunteers will walk along the creek to collect and pack out dead fish.  Only three (3) volunteers are needed each day (August 30 and 31).

Dates/Times: Volunteers will meet CPW staff at the Jefferson Market in Jefferson, CO (just on the other side of Kenosha Pass) in the morning (specific time TBD).  From there, volunteers will be escorted into the restoration site.  The project should last until 3:00 pm each day.

Project Rating: Moderate

What to Bring: Volunteers should bring a backpack, hiking shoes, rain gear, lunch/snacks, water, hat, sunscreen, and waders/hip boots (optional).

Sign Up: Please contact Dan Omasta (domasta@tu.org) with any questions or to sign up.  Space is limited to three people per day, so you must reserve your spot.
