Volunteers are needed to help with the Salmon Camera Project in Auburn Ravine creek in Lincoln, CA from mid-October until mid-April. We need people who can visit the site in the photo to clean the white panels on the streambed. The site is near the end of Mossdale Court, and is just upstream from the Auburn Ravine Dog Park. The cleaning is done with a scrub brush on a long handle. It is important to keep the panels clean so it will be easier for our overhead camera to spot the salmon as they swim upstream. The water is very cold this time of year so volunteers will need to wear waders. Some loaner waders may be available. The way down to the creek from the bank is steep and sometimes slippery. It takes about 20 minutes to clean the dirt, sand, and algae off the panels. You can pick your workdays in advance, and the time of day is up to you. Any commitment: one day per week, one day per month, or intermittent days will be helpful. Cleaning need not be done when the water is high or muddy. All volunteers must sign a waiver form. Youth ages 13 and up can participate if their parents, or legal guardians sign the waiver form and participate with them. For safety, we will partner you with another volunteer, or you can bring a friend to watch from the bank while you do the cleaning. Training will be provided. Face masks and social distancing are mandatory. To sign up, send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 916-672-9672. http://www.auburnravine.org
