Can you help count fish?

The Mystic River Watershed Association will launch the third year of the Herring Monitoring Program on April 1st. Volunteer herring monitors are needed to count fish for a ten minute slot at the DCR Upper Mystic Lake Dam in Medford. Training will be held on Saturday, March 22nd from 10am until noon at the Medford Boat Club. All herring monitors MUST REGISTER for this training (if you can’t make it on the 22nd we’ll find another date to train you).

No previous experience is needed.

  • Volunteers must be 18 years old or accompanied by an adult.

  • Volunteers should commit to counting for at least one 10-minute period per week, April 1 - June 15.

  • Must be able to swim.
