Volunteer: Coho and Steelhead Monitoring
This program is filled to capacity and no longer accepting applications at this time. Please consider volunteering for other programs at Point Reyes National Seashore.
The volunteer must be able to follow verbal and written instructions and walk long distances over rough, uneven terrain in streams subject to high flows while carrying 20 to 40 lbs of equipment. The volunteer may be exposed to ticks, poison oak, rain and extreme temperatures.
