European Green Crab First Detector Training (webinar)

July 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In partnership with Washington Invasive Species Council, Washington Sea Grant’s Crab Team presents an online seminar on how you can be on the lookout for European green crab. Crab Team program coordinator, Emily Grason, will teach you what to look for and what to do if you think you have found a European green crab.

Details: After three decades on the coast, European green crab was first spotted on Washington’s inland shorelines in 2016. This globally damaging invasive crab is still very rare in Washington’s Salish Sea, and keeping it rare relies on finding new populations while they are still small. By participating in this webinar, and learning about green crab, you can join Washington Sea Grant’s network of “Eyes on the Beach” of those who know what to look for and how to report this species, enhancing our ability to protect these shorelines.
