Friends of Herring River
Wellfleet and Truro, Massachusetts

Friends of Herring River will launch our 10th annual herring count this March and we are looking for volunteers! Serving as a volunteer is easy and fun, and no prior experience is necessary.

A kick-off meeting at the Wellfleet Library is scheduled for Thursday, March 21 from 1:00-3:00. The program will include a brief training followed by two presentations by fisheries experts. Abby Franklin Archer, Marine Educator with the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension Service, will talk about Herring Run Restorations on Cape Cod Rivers, and Dr. Ethan Estey, Wellfleet's Herring Warden, will talk about Herring Issues on the River.

The herring count runs from April 1 - May 31. To volunteer, or for more information, contact John Duane (
