Volunteers Invited for Alewife Monitoring Monday

Learn how to save a nearly-endangered species and volunteer.

Environment lovers can head to Oyster Bay Tuesday to learn how they can help save a potentially endangered species of fish.

Friends of the Bay will host an alewife monitoring training Tuesday night at their Oyster Bay headquarters.

Alewives, an inhabitant of Cold Spring Harbor and Oyster Bay, have been listed as a Species of Concern by NOAA and will likely become endangered without conservation efforts.

To help save this important species, Friends of the Bay is planning to modify impassable culverts and install fish ladders to help the fish reach a spawning habitat.

Anyone wishing to volunteer can attend the training session at 7 p.m. at Friends of the Bay headquarters in Oyster Bay.

Volunteers should be high school-aged or older.

RSVP to the event by contacting Kelly Hines Leo at kxhines@gw.dec.state.ny.us or Patricia Aitken at p.aitken@friendsofthebay.org. Volunteers can also call Leo at (631) 444-0441 or Aitken at (516) 922-6666.
