One measure of the health of our rivers is the number of river herring that swim upstream from the ocean to freshwater in our streams and rivers to spawn in spring. Many volunteers are needed to participate in Citizen Science and count herring. Click on your river of interest and you will be redirected to a website with more information or to an email address to request more information. And, have fun! Watching this natural specatacle is an awe-inspiring experience.
