Field and Survey Conditions:

The Lower Colorado River is hot and humid during the summer with temperatures ranging from 80-115 F. Field work is initiated in the early morning prior to sunrise, and often times accessing field sites will be conducted in the dark. Work will include conducting surveys in the morning and entering data on the computer the same day. Field staff will work a 5 day on and 2 day off schedule, but must be able to work any days of the week. The schedule may change and field staff must be adaptable to those changes. Some crew, particularly crew leaders, may have to work over 40 hour weeks.
