**If these dates don't work, Clallam MRC's programs are June 11 at John Wayne Marina and June 20 at the Port Angeles LIbrary.
Free crabber education programs will be offered by the Jefferson and Clallam MRCs in June. We are working with the Northwest Straits Foundation on a 3-year grant to reduce the number of lost crab pots in local bays. Lost pots become derelict fishing gear that continues to capture and kill crab. We'll be measuring effectiveness of outreach efforts by collecting derelict pots found in Port Townsend Bay and Dungeness Bay before and after outreach efforts. More overall project info here and more info about workshops here.
This month, contractors will be removing 255 derelict pots in Port Townsend Bay and 151 pots in Dungeness Bay, just 4 and 5 years respectively after these bays were swept for derelict pots in a previous project! Learn more so your pots aren't lost, too.
