Invasive Green Crab Research

Volunteer opportunity

Volunteers are needed for a project that involves active management of the invasive European green crab population in a subdivision of Bolinas Lagoon known as Seadrift Lagoon. The work involves counting, measuring, etc. the many green crabs that are captured daily with baited traps in the Lagoon. No previous experience necessary for this.

Volunteers would need to be able to get to Seadrift Lagoon/Stinson Beach by 9 am and work for about four hours. Volunteers need to only bring themselves, water, food, sunscreen, etc. (we provide all necessary field gear). Interested folks should contact Kate Bimrose.
