Crab Team Training

“Hi All- Washington Sea Grant's Crab Team is holding a Kitsap training again this spring to support existing monitoring sites, possibly establish a couple of new ones and to inform participants about green crab identification and potential impacts. Please feel free to pass this along to those you feel might be interested. Thanks and have a great day! JEff

Crab Team Training Workshop (Kitsap Public Works Annex, near airport)
March 3 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

This event is free, but registration is required.

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 be our “Boots in the Mud” and join the Crab Team volunteer corps – 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;
• Joining a team of 3 – 5 volunteers and selecting a monitoring site;
• Identification of pocket estuary critters;
• Monitoring equipment.

Details: We will break for lunch, but we recommend bringing a bagged lunch. Your attendance does not require that you sign up to monitor a site; we welcome attendees who are just interested in finding out what citizen science is all about, and encourage you to contact us or read the Get Involved section of our website to find out what our volunteers do!

Contact the Crab Team at if you have any questions. Visit the Crab Team site for more information.

This event is free, but registration is required.
