Community monitors survey multiple beaches (see map) throughout the summer specifically looking for European Green Crabs. They are an aggressive invader and have been working their way up the West Coast, although they have not made it to Alaska or Kachemak Bay yet. Traps are set for 24 hours and organisms caught are cataloged and released. To date, no EGCs or other invaders have been found in in this program.
