Volunteers are needed to help fix the problem of otters getting into the pens at Berryessa. A work party has been scheduled for October 16 & 17 at 9AM. The plan is to secure all the edges and any points of entry with angle iron and clamps to close any points of entry by the otters.
If you are available and willing to help one or both days, it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Stan Wong @ 925-818-9332 if you are able to help. Thank You in Advance.
