Desert Conservation Field Trip, May 16-17, 2008
Posted by sfbaka on 2008/4/14 13:51:08 (3026 reads)

The next desert fish conservation trip will be on May 16-17, 2008.

The location is just south of Bishop to work on a spring system there that has a small population of pupfish.

There will be several tasks including cutting cattails (lots of cattails), trapping and dip netting mosquitofish and crayfish.

We will be working on land owned by LA power and water and at least one of their staff will be working with us. We will need to be sensitive to their wishes while working there as we need to ensure good relations, otherwise future work there may not be possible.

There will be more details to come.

Desert Conservation Field Trip Autum 2005

Desert Springs Action Committee Autumn Fieldtrip to Ash Meadows, Nevada.

October 14th and 15th, 2005

Yearly we travel to Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge to perform hands-on restoration and recovery work for native fish species there. This work benefits three threatened and endangered killifish species as well as one dace species. Education is also a primary focus of our outings so all ages are welcome (and non-aquarists too).

Projects chosen to enhance native fish habitats on the refuge are overseen by US Fish and Wildlife Service personnel and by our science advisor Peter Unmack. Work difficulty ranges from strenuous to negligible depending on your inclination.

This happening is always a good time, and a chance to socialize with other killikeepers around the campfire after a day of work and sightseeing in the refuge. Attendance of about a dozen people is typical, but past trips have attracted nearly 30 individuals. Typically, we camp on the refuge or you can stay in luxury at the Longstreet Casino a few miles away (discounts are available).

I cannot stress enough how gratifying it is to know I have made a difference toward these speciesí survival. For more information, please visit the DSAC website:

See you in the desert!
