FISH & EEL COUNTS

We work with NOAA to maintain an an eel trap under the bridge at Mill Pond Park. The trap is checked every day to record the number of eels entering the pond. Currently our days to check the trap are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We usually park at the side of the road on King Street and walk down to the park.
