Discovery Bay Monitoring
We've seen good progress at our Discovery Bay project site. Volunteers have been out every summer monitoring the 2014 habitat enhancement area.
See the 2021 Olympia Oyster Discovery Bay Summary Report here for more details. We will be adding more clean shell over the coming years to build up a large enough substrate base for a stable population. Adding additional shell annually is a good strategy for stabilizing the project area, as some shell will sink into the sediment or be moved by currents into adjacent areas.
