There is a lot of work involved in restoring and protecting an endangered species, the waters they inhabit, and the land we all love and use. Much of this work is conducted in partnership with state and federal agencies; some as part of the assessment of the Parr Project, some directed towards collecting information on other fish species such as Rainbow Smelt or Alewives. The Clamshell Project and Egg Planting are just a couple examples of field work we are assisting with outside of the parr project. Be sure to check back; we will be posting updates on seasonal field work and information on how you can get involved!
