Join us for Oyster Reef Ball Monitoring at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline!

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 several years, volunteers built 100 reef balls 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 early morning. We provide waders, you’ll want to dress in layers, a hat, and bring a water bottle. No experience is necessary, but spots are limited so please send an email to satoko@thewatershedproject.org for RSVP and let us know which day you would like to join. If you have any questions, please contact us at the same email address.

We will hike up to the pier, walk on the mudflat, and squat a lot. If you would like to join this event with children or youth, please consider them and they MUST be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 require a waiver signed by a legal guardian.
