CANCELED: Crab Team New Volunteer Training – Port Townsend

March 11, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


**Update: It is with an abundance of caution that the Washington Sea Grant Director has made the decision to cancel this training workshop. We do not want to risk anyone’s health and wellness given the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in our state. As members of our broader Washington Sea Grant and UW community, current information regarding the University’s communications and protocols can be found at uw.edu/coronavirus. It is our goal to reschedule the workshop when we are able. Please reach out to crabteam@uw.edu with any questions.


Interested in becoming a Crab Team volunteer monitor to help protect pocket estuaries in Washington’s Salish Sea? This full-day training workshop will fully equip you to join Crab Team’s “Boots in the Mud” – no prior experience necessary. The workshop will include:

  • An introduction to pocket estuaries and the invasion threat from European green crab;
  • Learning and practicing the monitoring protocols;
  • Identification of pocket estuary animals;

More information: This year, Crab Team is recruiting a limited number of new volunteers to add to existing sites/teams, so we cannot guarantee that all new participants will be matched with a team. If you would like more information on where opportunities are available, please email crabteam@uw.edu. In addition, we welcome attendees who are just interested in finding out what community science is all about, you are under no obligation to join a team. We encourage you to contact us or read the Get Involved section of our website to find out what our volunteers do.

Logistics: Signs will guide you upstairs to the event space at Northwest Maritime Center. We will have light refreshments and a short break for lunch, but we recommend bringing a bagged lunch. Depending on weather, part of the training workshop might be conducted outside on the patio. Please come ready to spend up to an hour outside, including warm clothing.

Registration is required: Complete the RSVP form below and you will receive a reminder email one week prior to the event.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Northwest Maritime Center
