Rio Guadalupe Cleanup & Logger Workshop
What: New Mexico Trout has a tradition of welcoming the Spring opening of FR 376 between the Gilman Tunnels and Porter’s Landing with a volunteer trash pickup. That Forest Service road provides access to our Rio Guadalupe home water and it accumulates a lot of roadside trash over a season’s heavy use by the many people who visit that corridor. Doing these annual cleanups is one way we can express our thanks for the wonderful trout fishing opportunities the Rio Guadalupe affords, while we help maintain it in a state that we like to visit.
Lunch and Temperature Logger Workshop: We will have lunch beside the Rio Cebolla about two miles upstream of Porter’s Landing. This is a spot that will allow us to check the status of one of the Beaver Dam Analogs that New Mexico Trout helped install several years ago. It is also near one of the in-stream temperature loggers that we replaced last Fall. After lunch we will conduct a short workshop on installing and uploading temperature data from the loggers. The loggers can be read by a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone with the Onset HOBOconnect app installed.
When: 9:00 AM Saturday, April 9, 2022
Where: Meet at the locked gate south of the Gilman Tunnels on FR 376
Who: This event is restricted to current and prospective New Mexico Trout Members and their families.
Finish: By 4:00 since the transfer station in Cañon for trash disposal closes at 5:00

The club will supply trash bags and hand sanitizer. Depending on turnout each volunteer will cover a half mile to a mile of the roadside. Warren Hartman, the new Jemez Ranger District Recreation Specialist, will be there to meet us and to help with the cleanup and trash hauling.
