As part of our obligations under RVCA’s health and Safety policy I have included a link to our participant guide, with a list of possible hazards that could be encountered during stream surveys.  The potential hazards specific to each site will be covered on the day of the survey.  Please take a minute to review the link and let me know if you have any questions.
