Help count river herring at Mill Brook!

Here is your chance to participate in the fish run that is about to start on Mill Brook in Westbrook.

Jason Smith, a Masters candidate at the Muskie School of Public Service, is coordinating the counting of alewives that arrive in Highland Lake. On May 9th, from 8am- 12pm, Jason will be at the fish ladder on Duck Pond Road to conduct volunteer training – a very easy process. The location and use of a handheld click counter, data sheet, and pencil will be explained.

Although training is an important prerequisite for standardization of results, actual time slots can be confirmed at this link:
