Green Crab Bio Blitz

September 30, 2023 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Molt Search – Important New Program

Early detection of European Green Crab presents the best chance to reduce the spread and impact of this globally damaging invasive species. Washington Sea Grant and Washington State University Extension, and Sound Water Stewards are leading Molt Searcha new volunteer-based early detection program to complement the existing WSG Crab Team trapping and monitoring network in which our Sound Water Stewards are already doing vital work!

Molt Search teaches volunteers what to look for and how to report the presence of European green crab molts along inland shorelines. See the Protocols and Crab Identification Sheet

What & Where: Judy and Steve Liedle are hosting an in-person bio blitz on Whidbey Island in Coupeville, Washington to help you learn how to conduct your beach survey, and upload your data to MyCoast app following the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife protocol.

When: September 30th at the Keystone Marine Preserve. Meet at the picnic tables by the restroom. Save this page to keep up to date.
