Work Day

Redd Surveying Training

Dear members and friends of CWTU,

Most of you are aware of our popular CWTU Stream Conservation Workdays that are held on the 3rd Saturday of each month May-Sept. Our DNR partners have contacted us about an exciting new opportunity on Saturday, October 28th for those who are interested. This would be a training workday specifically for brown trout redd (spawning nest) surveying on the West Branch of the White River.

The plan is to meet up at the DNR Trout Habitat crew’s shop in Wild Rose (see address below) at 8:30-ish, starting at 9:00 am with a short classroom presentation on the surveying app we will be using (see links below and attached handbook), followed by a field trip to the West Branch of the White River to get some hands-on training, and then back to the shop for lunch at noon.

You will need to bring a few things:

Your smartphone or tablet
Waders or hip boots
Polarized sunglassesThis is the link to the Survey123 Trout Redd Mobile App. Please have this downloaded to your device before we meet. Thank you:

And this is the link to the interactive ArcGIS mapping database. Here you can browse around and look at data that has been collected, from around the world.

We will briefly go over these during the morning classroom portion of the training, so don’t feel like you need to spend a lot of time reviewing these documents beforehand.

If you are interested in attending, please let me know so I can get an accurate headcount to the crew. It should be a fun day! In the event we have foul weather on the 28th, our rescheduled date will be Sat. 11/4.

We had a great workday turnout Saturday, May 20th. A chapter member Mark Hoffmann was taking lots of photos and said he would send them to Wayne. I just emailed him as a reminder. Below is the group photo and the photo of Elliot Donnelly Chapter member Jeff Goad presenting a check for $4000 to Linn Beck.
