Auburn Ravine Salmon Surveys (October 2021 - March 2022)

Save to Favorites

We need people to do Salmon Surveys along Auburn Ravine from mid-October until mid-March. You and a partner will walk/wade along sections of the creek on Saturday mornings in the Lincoln area (weather and water conditions permitting.) We also sometimes do mid-week surveys. The creek sections are 2 miles or less in length. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, you and your partner will need to be members of the same household, or both have been vaccinated. Each pair of volunteers needs to have 2 cars so they can drive back to their starting point when they are done with the survey. Volunteers do not have to participate every Saturday, but can do so if they wish. Young people, age 13 to 17, are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. All volunteers, parents, or legal guardians will need to sign a waiver form, and a COVID-19 acknowledgement. It will be best if volunteers have their own wading boots (preferably the chest-high type), but some loaners are available. Training on survey methods including DNA collection, and salmon-tag recovery will be provided. Our Project Managers kick off the Saturday events at McBean Park in Lincoln at 9AM. Most volunteers complete their sections by Noon. We have a CDFW permit for this project. If you volunteered with us in the last 2 years, we have you on our list and we will contact you when we are ready to schedule the first survey of the season.
