Electro-Shocking Science Master Naturalist Advanced Training
July 24 @ 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM$35
Just how do scientists study fish in our area lakes and rivers? Max Wolter, Fisheries Biologist from the Wisconsin DNR, will teach us about a research method called electro-shocking used to survey fish populations. Practice your fish ID, too. To compare stream types, we’ll begin by surveying on the Namekagon River and move to Big Brook after lunch. Bring lunch, water sunscreen, polarized glasses, and non-breathable chest waders that do not leak. You don’t have to be a certified Master Naturalist to participate! Any adult learners are welcome. Meet at the Leonard School bridge at 9:00 a.m. and finish by 3:00 p.m. Register by July 17 by going to cablemuseum.org or call the Cable Natural History Museum at 715-798-3890. Suggested donation $35 per person.
