Next Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday Pacific Habitat Services will be performing its annual monitoring of the eelgrass mitigation site southwest of the NOAA facility. The Port of Newport relies on volunteer help to support the plant survey and recording during the negative tide period starting on the following times:
Sunday 13—–6-9 am
Monday 14—7-10 am
Tuesday 15—7:45-10:45 am
Volunteers are needed and would be very useful for the first few hours in each of the mornings. This is a good opportunity to meet people and learn about our local marine ecology.
Any interested people should contact Rick Fuller at RFuller@Portofnewport.com or by phone 541.961.3904.
We will be meeting at the South Beach Marina north utility building to the east of the SB marina fuel station (behind the big sand pile). Clam boots and/or waders are helpful as this is muddy wet work.
Much appreciation for your help,
Facilities Manager NOAA MOC-P
