On Sunday, Nov. 13, at 11 a.m., Friends of Netarts Bay Watershed, Estuary, Beach, and Sea (WEBS) is hosting a workshop with Jim Young. Young is a scientist, photographer, and board member of Friends of Netarts Bay WEBS. This free event is open to all and will be held at the Netarts Community Center (4949 Netarts Hwy).

About the event:

"Netarts Bay and the surrounding ocean waters are home to many Dungeness crab. It is likely you have encountered these crabs- scurrying around the bay, in a crab pot, or perhaps just remnant shells on the beach. If you are curious about Dungeness crabs, then we have you covered! By the end of this event, you will know how to tell Dungeness crabs apart from other local crabs, what they eat, how long they live, and how they reproduce! We will marvel at their unique adaptations as we explore internal and external anatomy."
