The Problem

Our city has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to raise baby walleye for them to release into area lakes. Our group will be providing the volunteers needed to net the fish and see them safely to their final homes in the lakes.

Our Plan

We will be providing the labor needed to assist the DNR with netting the fish each fall. Setting nets, raking out weeds, weighing and measuring the fish are just some of the activities that our volunteers will be doing.
