If you are wondering what to do with your spare time you might consider joining and volunteering with QISES. Present board members and volunteers find the experience educational, rewarding and often fun.

Volunteers are the basis of who we are and what we do. We're actively seeking volunteers for educational outreach, membership list coordination, fund-raising opportunities, and of course, stream work. The latter includes stream assessment, habitat restoration, drought-proofing activities, fry trapping and fall salmon counts, along with data reporting and mapping. We also carry out hiking and boat-access only trips to potential fish streams, including the amazing Village Bay and Main Lakes feeder streams, to check for fish presence and habitat quality.

If you want to learn more about the geography, streams and their riparian areas, spawning and resident fish of our beautiful island, please consider joining. Contact Janis at 3614 or Al at 2948 for further information.

Personal note; I have not regretted for one minute, joining QISES 3 years ago. I learn more about Quadra Island every year and I love working with the other board members.
