You can enjoy the great outdoors, help the animals at Wildlife Images and win some awesome prizes during the Rogue Pikeminnow Roundup!
As you end your holiday weekend make a stop by Wildlife Images to donate your pikeminnow catches to the Animal Ambassadors. We can’t think of a better way to end a holiday weekend and mark the unofficial end of summer.
We are partnering with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for this program that will help protect native fish in the Rogue River, like our beloved salmon. Umpqua pikeminnow were illegally introduced into the Rogue River in 1978 near Wolf Creek. Since then, the species has made it hard for native fish to thrive.
September 2 is the last day you can enter your pikeminnow catches into a contest to win great prizes from Blackbird Shopping Center, Sportman’s Warehouse, a guided fishing trip and much more!
Fresh and frozen pikeminnow can be brought to Wildlife Images where staff will collect it to feed the Animal Ambassadors. Volunteers will be on hand to weigh and collect fish from 11:00 – 4:00 on Monday, September 2 so you can be entered into the contest.
The fish collected will be fed to the bears, otters, and wading birds who call Wildlife Images home!
