Crab Team New Volunteer Training (Padilla Bay)
March 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
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 crabs;
- Learning and practicing the monitoring protocols;
- Identification of pocket estuary critters;
More information: This year, Crab Team is recruiting only 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we welcome attendees who are just interested in finding out what citizen 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.
We will take a short break for lunch, but we recommend bringing a bagged lunch. Depending on weather, part of the training workshop might be conducted outside. Please come ready to spend up to an hour outside, including warm clothing and sturdy shoes.
