Counting Dinosaurs: Sturgeon Survey

August 14, 2019
(Master Naturalist Advanced Training)
Sturgeon are the oldest and largest native fish in the Great Lakes region. After basic safety and survey training, Max Wolter, Fisheries Biologist from the Wisconsin DNR, will discuss why sturgeon are returning to the Couderay River. Then we’ll paddle the river in canoes to attempt to make visual observations of sturgeon. If we can capture one, we’ll take measurements for research. Any species of fish we see will become teachable moments. Bring lunch, water, sunscreen, polarized glasses, and your canoe and lifejacket. Meet at Couderay Town Park, Hoffer Road in village of Couderay at 9:00 a.m. and finish by 5:00 p.m. You don’t have to be a certified Master Naturalist to participate! Any adult learners are welcome. Space is limited. Register byAugust 10 by going to or call 715-798-3890. Suggested donation $45 per person.
