Native Olympia Oyster Stewardship & Monitoring Project

The Director of the SEA Discovery Center, Dr. Sylvia Yang, is leading a project to monitor the health and growth of native Olympia Oysters. Sylvia is looking for volunteers to assist her with the project and will be holding an orientation and work party this Thursday, Aug 3, from 1-5 PM. The team will collect oysters from the floating lab and take them to the science center for cleaning, tagging, and measuring. After the initial measurements are taken, activities will consist of cleaning and measuring the oysters weekly, biweekly, or monthly. Please contact Sylvia if you are interested Sylvia.Yang@wwu.edu.
