The Bull Trout Task Force project is in the Yakima Basin this year. It’s a unique project that provides an on-the-ground crew to mitigate recreational impacts to bull trout. Bull Trout are listed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act – the overall goal of this project is bull trout conservation. The primary duties of the project are to: educate anglers about bull trout and how to identify them, remove recreation dams (rock dams) that are built in spawning tributaries and can become passage barriers, host educational campground presentations, and assess flow during spawning migration and population monitoring.
The volunteer work would involve educating anglers (training provided) and walking streams to find recreation dams. The work is done in teams of two for safety.
