Come play in the mud for a great cause!!
On Sunday 8/10, Monday 8/11, and Tuesday 8/12 Pacific Habitat Services will perform its annual monitoring of the eelgrass mitigation site southwest of the NOAA docks. 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 August 10th—–6:30-9 am (approx. 2-3 hrs. of help needed)
Monday August 11th—-7-10 am (approx. 2-3 hrs. of help needed)
Tuesday August 12th—-8-11 am (approx. 2-3 hrs. of help needed)
Volunteers are needed and would be very welcome 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.
Interested people should contact Rick Fuller at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 work. But remember! It’s also fun!
