Enclosed is a MS Word Document that lists are large number of volunteer
opportunities for spring through fall 2006.  Many of these
events are sponsored by Trout Unlimited.  There are also events sponsored by
Santa Fe National Forest Service, the Coalition for the Valle Vidal and Amigos
Bravos.  Below is a partial list of events, those scheduled for April and May,
2006.  There are plenty of events and dates so we welcome your help.


April 22 and 23.  Santa Fe National Forest.  Celebrate Earth Day Weekend by
helping us build upwards to two miles of fence to protect stream banks and
wetlands associated with Rio Cebolla; 10 to 15 volunteers needed. Contact
Chuck Dentino, (505)829-3535


May 6 and 7.  Santa Fe National Forest.  Upper Rio Cebolla Cross Fence.  A
cattle fence will be built along the Pipeline road (FR 527) to fence off
trespassing cattle from accessing the upper Rio Cebolla. This would tie into a
fence along the upper Cebolla's eastern edge built by NM Trout that protects a
rare population of Rio Grande cutthroat trout. The cross fence could be
installed in two days with a fair amount of volunteers. Dates are open to
allow for the weekend that volunteers are available. Upwards to 20 volunteers
needed. Contact Derek Padilla, (505) 829-3535

May 22 and 23.  Santa Fe National Forest.  Vacas Project Monitoring.  
The Rio de las Vacas Stream Restoration Project will have on-going monitoring
to measure its successes and setbacks. Part of this effort would include
electroshocking and snorkeling. Upwards to 4 volunteers needed. Contact Chuck

May 27-29, 2006: Sponsored by the Issues outing to the Valle Vidal. Memorial
Day Campout. Arrive Saturday and enjoy easy to moderate hikes on Sunday and
Monday. Communal meals possible on one or both nights. Co-sponsored by
the Pajarito Environmental Education Center. Reservations a must. For
more information, call Ilse Bleck at 662-2368.

May 31 to June 7.  Santa Fe National Forest.  Capulin Canyon Stream and Fish
Population Inventory.  This year, Rio Grande cutthroat trout will swim in the
waters of Capulin for the first time in nearly century. As part of this
effort, we will be conducting a stream habitat inventory and snorkel survey
for the 7-mile segment that runs through Bandelier and Dome Wilderness. Most
of the gear will be provided and packed in.  This is a backcountry camping
experience that involves long days of hiking. Upwards to two volunteers
needed. Snorkeling hinges on fish release date. Contact Chuck Dentino,
