Chesapeake Bay Field Office biologist, Sandy Davis, conducted training for the Maryland Stream Waders Program showing volunteers how to identify and document stream blockages as part of their stream assessment. Stream Waders is an adult volunteer stream sampling component of the Maryland Biological Stream Survey, Maryland Department of Natural Resources' professional stream sampling program. The blockage information collected by the volunteers will fill data gaps in the Maryland Fish Passage Prioritization Matrix, and assist the Chesapeake Bay Field Office in the strategic selection of stream sites for dam removal and habitat improvement.
