Nearly to 200 Jackson Hole Middle School 7th grade students became involved in a hands-on biology project they will pursue over the next several months. The students joined Grand Teton National Park, Trout Unlimited, Teton Science Schools and Wyoming Game and Fish biologists at the Gros Ventre Campground on Tuesday and Wednesday to participate in fish radio tagging, telemetry, water quality monitoring, electro fishing and macro-invertebrate identification. Now, with the support of Trout Unlimited, Wyoming Game and Fish officials and volunteers, the students will monitor life histories of the 35 radio tagged fish for the remainder of the year to see if the removal of the Newbold Dam changes the movements of fish in the Gros Ventre River. That dam had been removed earlier this year by Trout Unlimited and the National Park Service. Biologists hope the dam removal will increase connectivity between the Snake River and upstream habitat in the Gros Ventre drainage for cutthroat trout and other native fish.
