Join us for oyster monitoring at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline!
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 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 sign up here and go down to the “sign up” link. If you have any questions, please contact to email@example.com for more information.
This event is an evening event and we will walk in a mudflat. 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.
