Leah: What drew you to volunteer with A Rocha?
Regina: I wouldn’t say I was “drawn” to volunteer with A Rocha, it just happened to me! You see, I was interested in streamkeepers activities because of my love for water and fish. (I have a goldfish/ koi pond in our yard and get really excited when I see the chickadee family come to bathe in the waterfall, a frog sit on a lillypad or a dragonfly emerging from its cocoon.) So, in order for the Hatchery Project to happen, Cindy and I found a garden shed suitable for the project and hauled it to our back yard. Since the desired location was not going to be ready when the fish were ready to spawn (end September) the shed stayed in my back yard for the duration of the hatching cycle.
Once I’ve committed to something, I will do my best to see it though.
I plan to be involved in the construction of the new Hatchery building till completed and be part of the streamkeepers activities in the future, after all, playing outside is why I got involved in the first place!
