6:30-9 AM Eel Grass Volunteers Needed at Port of Newport

August 10, 2014 6:30 AM - 9:00 AM

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 August 10-----6:30-9 am
Monday August 11---7-10 am
Tuesday August 12---8-11 am
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. 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.
Our appreciation for your help.
