Herring Count Training Meeting

  • Liberty Hall Club 2150 Main St Marstons Mills, MA 02648 USA


Have you ever wanted to volunteer and make a difference?  Here is your chance. Become a part of a worthwhile project and become a herring counter!

The population of the River Herring (Alewives and Blue Backed Herring) has decreased dramatically over the last several decades and the State of Massachusetts has established this program to document their numbers.  Join hundreds of other volunteers across the Commonwealth and count the herring!  It only takes a minimal amount of time and very little effort.  It's the perfect volunteer opportunity!

Join us on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Liberty Hall in Marstons Mills. We will explain the counting protocol (all of the scheduling and reporting is done online!) and we'll explain all there is to know about being a herring counter.  The herring are only here for a very short time, usually the end of March until mid-May. 


When:                   Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Where:                  Liberty Hall, 2150 Main St., Marstons Mills, MA 02648
