If conditions are right (i.e. the Santa Fe is not flooding after heavy rains), we will hike (wade) up the Santa Fe River where it meets the New River. We will sample the various micro-habitats (e.g. pools, riffles) for fish and aquatic invertebrates using various seine and dip nets. Hopefully, we will have a few experts along that can help us with the ID’s.
Space is limited, RSVP required!
