We are excited to share this event in April! We will have an Oyster Reef Ball Monitoring at Point Pinole
Regional Shoreline to see and count the oysters on the reef balls and observe their environment.
Over the course of several years, volunteers built 100 reef balls which were deployed in 2013 as
substrate for the native Olympia oyster. Twice a year we go out and survey everything that’s growing on
the reef balls, including algae, oysters, and other invertebrates.
Due to the tide schedule in the spring, we’ll be heading out in the morning. We provide waders, but
you’ll want to dress in layers (depending on the weather but morning is still cold, mid-day is warm, and
there is no shade in the ocean!), a hat and bring a water bottle. No experience is necessary, but spots
are limited so please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for RSVP. If you have any
questions, please contact to the same email address.
We will hike up to the pier, walk on the mudflat, and squat. If you would like to join this event with
children or youth, they MUST be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 require a waiver signed by a legal guardian.
