Join us at a training session for volunteers interested in conducting salmon and steelhead monitoring in the Alameda Creek watershed this coming fall and winter.
At the training, you will learn more about the Alameda Creek Alliance’s salmonid monitoring program and past monitoring efforts in the watershed. You will also be refreshed on salmonid identification and receive a walk through on how to use the Survey123 application that will record your monitoring efforts. As part of the monitoring work, volunteers will be provided safe and legal access to portions of the watershed and will be expected to walk along the creek to conduct visual observations of fish and spawning beds.
The training session will be hosted by Alameda Creek Alliance (ACA), CalTrout, East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD), SFPUC, and CDFW.
Why volunteer at Alameda Creek?
Alameda Creek is the largest watershed in the Bay Area, and for the first time in over 50 years salmon and steelhead will be able to access the watershed to spawn. Migration is made possible by the completed fish ladder at lower Alameda Creek in addition to the hard work of various groups to improve fish passage throughout the watershed. CalTrout is partnering with Alameda Creek Alliance to build out a volunteer program to help us monitor these fish as they re-enter the watershed. Monitoring work is essential to help inform future restoration efforts – and we can’t do it without you!
