CWRA sent out the following information:

The 2024 herring count is almost underway! CRWA is seeking volunteers to participate at our Watertown Dam location at least once a week from April 15th to June 30th, from 7 am to 7 pm. Soon we will release a sign-up sheet where volunteers can register for a one-hour time slot. Volunteers can come anytime within that hour and perform their count — the fish counting only takes ten minutes and all materials will be provided! Click here to sign up to volunteer
