Review for IPSWICH RIVER WATERSHED ASSOCIATION INC, Ipswich, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past three years I've been volunteering for the Ipswich River Watershed Association as their Herring Count coordinator. We get up to 60 volunteers each spring who spend ten minutes at a time looking for migrating herring at the fish ladder near the downtown dam. Even though most people don't get to see a fish, as the herring run has been drastically depleted, they are the most eager and excited people I have ever met and it's a pleasure to coordinate them and volunteer for such a wonderful organization. The herring run would have been completely wiped out by now if it wasn't for the IRWA's tireless fight to ensure that water flows down the river in even in the driest of summers.

Role:  Volunteer & coordinate the annual river herring count.
