Copied from the Desert Fishes Council's listserve.

I am on the look out for one volunteer to help with our Little Colorado River (LCR) field work from June 22-July 3, 2017. The volunteer would participate in one twelve day sampling trip in the LCR to sample juvenile humpback chub (an endangered fish native to the Colorado River basin). The field work is very physically demanding as we spend 10+ hours per day hiking over rugged terrain in hot conditions (temperatures can be as high as 110 F, though the river is a pleasant temperature). Also, we work in remote conditions and have very limited communication with the outside world. Volunteers must be 18 years or older and need to be aware of the physical demands and remote conditions before committing. We access the canyon via helicopter, and volunteers would be required to take a 3-5 hour online training prior to the trip. Volunteers would be responsible for traveling to Flagstaff, Arizona, afterwhich food costs and "accomodations" (i.e., camping) are covered.

If you're interested , please send a resume or CV with two references to Maria Dzul (mdzul@usgs.gov). Please include 'LCR volunteer' in the title of your email.
