    Join The Redsides for a Redd Survey Training

    We haven’t forgotten about you!

    Neither high flows, a computer crash nor sickness could indefinitely keeping us from getting out on the Smith River to conduct steelhead redd surveys!

    In all seriousness, we are excited to get out on the river!  We have a training planned to keep you safe and maximize your eyes out on the water!  The training will be held on the river for some real time experience with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

    Please plan to join us for one of the following training dates on the Smith:
    ·        March 12th, 10:30am-12:30pm: Returning redd survey volunteers
    ·        March 26th, 10:30am-1pm: Redd survey volunteers

    Please register for a training by contacting me (; 907-205-0974).  Carpooling may be an option.  Once you are registered, I will provide detailed location information as well as how to best prepare for the training and answer any questions you may have.

    Can’t wait!
