Alewife Committee - Volunteers Needed

The Surry Alewife Committee has worked to support the journey of the alewives from Patten Bay to where they began their lives, in Lower Patten Pond. We couldn’t have done it without the generous support of so many people who live in this town and honor what’s left of its wildlife – birds, mammals, insects, and fish.

We continue to ask for volunteer help. At about mid-May, the fish will begin to return. What we need are people to sit under the bridge on the North Bend Road for a half an hour a slot as the fish swim up the stream to the pond. We are counters – and we count when there are lots of fish in a school, or sit quietly, listening to spring come back around us as we wait for the next school. It is, for many of us, a lovely break in a busy season. And for the Committee it is essential. We cannot do this work without your help.

Before the fish run, we will teach the new counters how to count fast moving fish.

We look forward to this short season – no more than a month – when our town experiences its own particular wild – though silent – migration.

Please get in touch with the town if you are interested in helping, or call 667-3417.

Thank you,
Susan Hand Shetterly
