FWS Goose nesting survey

Postby cootkilla » Thu Mar 29, 2012 1:09 pm

Its that time of year once again.. The FWS working with the IWA is doing the goose nesting survey on the snake river islands. The goal this year is to do all 160 islands. In the past they have limited the number of islands due to man power and budget. The IWA has been pushing for them to do all the islands so that we have accurate data being provided to fish and game on nesting. We need your help to make this happen.

date is april 7th, 7:00 a.m saturday meeting at the FWS shop.
They will work thru till the 11th which is a Wednesday.
Sunday being easter they will not be doing it on that day but will resume on Monday.
They have included a weekend this year in hopes of getting more volunteers.

If you would be interested in doing this please let me know.
You can either pm me here or shoot me an e-mail at outdoord@cableone.net and I will get you setup to help out..
You can bring your own boat or ride with someone that has one.

Let me know if you have any questions..
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you..

Darin.

I wish I would have noticed this earlier and made plans to head down and help. I may have to talk to my boss anyway considering I work for Idaho Fish and Game... Are they meeting every morning at 7am?
Every day I try to be the person my dog thinks I am. If I have accomplished this when my time comes, I feel I will have had a pretty good life.

All this week. I believe they are hoping to be done by Thursday.

It was a great weekend to be out doing the survey. Hope you can get a chance to get out and
enjoy a day on the river..
