Calling all oyster enthusiasts!
It’s that time of year again – time to get out on the mudflats and monitor oysters at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline. 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, from algae to oysters and other invertebrates.
Due to the tide schedule in the fall we’ll be out in the evening, with light from headlamps and the full moon. We provide waders, but you’ll want to dress to stay warm and bring a water bottle. No experience is necessary, but spots are limited so please RSVP to email@example.com for more information.
