Help us bring back more fish to the Concord River

2017 April Training Alewife Flier

During the spring of 2017, we’re expecting a large run of river herring (alewife)!  Alewife will be migrating from the ocean, up the Merrimack River, and into the Concord this spring.

We need you to help us count the fish, both at the Centennial Island fish ladder and through video monitoring.

We’ll provide the training and support you need.  You bring your energy and interest in improving the Concord River watershed.  More information about volunteer needs

Immediately following our eco-film screening (6:30-8pm, “End of the Line”), join us for an informational session about our upcoming fish monitoring season.

Our partners from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) will share their expertise in alewife (herring) monitoring and background about the history of the program.

Collecting data can be fun and you can truly make a difference!  returning alewife population that will be migrating up the Concord to spawn this spring, and how you can help!
