The next wave of building fish habitat is fast approaching. Below are the scheduled dates from October through January where we will need volunteers to help build fish habitat. The general plan is to meet at 7:30 am at the Mesa Game and Fish Office (7200 E University Drive; Mesa, Arizona 85207). For the days where we will be pouring concrete the cement truck will be scheduled to arrive at 9:30 am the first time and then 9:00 am for all other pours. We will be pouring the 12 concrete fish balls and using the extra cement to build 20-40 polyshrubs. The polyshrubs will be made by filling 5-gallon buckets halfway with cement and placing various lengths of flexible polyethylene pipes into the cement. We are asking everyone who is able to stay for an extra half hour to an hour after we pour the cement to help build these additional structures. Any and all help is welcomed, 18 years or older. Children 14 to 17 years old need to be accompanies by an adult who will supervise them.
We will provide all the tools along with an ice-chest full of bottled water. We have a limited number of work gloves available and I suggest bringing your own pair in case we run out. The molds are made of fiberglass so dress accordingly, long-sleeved shirts and pants are recommended. Closed-toe shoes are required. Donít forget to bring sunscreen as there is minimal shade and most of the work is in direct sunlight.
Jeremy Richards made a short-YouTube video on how we assemble and tear down the molds. It is a great example of what is involved in making the concrete fish balls : http://youtu.be/MOECYMtCZXs
