In Person Events

Coffee, Crayfish & Community Action!

Join Friends of Oak Park Open Space (FOPOS) and the high school junior conservationists of Team Crayfish for a creek ecology experience and crayfish removal.

We will begin the morning with creek-side coffee and pastries as we come together for introductions and a brief orientation by Debbie Sharpton, the head of FOPOS and director emeritus of the Mountains Restoration Trust, and Joel Goldes, an expert on crayfish removal. Together we will stroll along the Medea Creek watershed and learn about the local species as well as identifying, documenting, and removing highly invasive crayfish.

Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes (ideally waterproof boots), sun and hand protection (hat/sunscreen/gloves), and a water bottle. All other equipment will be provided.
