The repair work on Rainbow Lake is coming up next week, and a number of park users have asked me what happens to the fish. I checked with Brian Carter, the zoo publicity guy who sits on our board, and he and the marine curators have graciously agreed to help out with this problem. The Zoo is going to temporarily relocate the lake's fish and amphibians to the Zoo exhibits and holding tanks, but it's a big job, and they'll need help catching the fish.
Brian says they've bought a large number of nets and need volunteers on Tuesday, July 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to help out. Volunteers ages 18 and older who are interested in helping should email Brandy Weigandt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Outdoor work clothes and rubber boots are strongly recommended.
Please help spread the word, since we don't have a lot of time to publicize this effort.
