Port of Newport

An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play

Eelgrass Harvest

The Port had a great turnout of volunteers for the eelgrass harvest August 9-11, 2010. Twenty-two young adults and students participated, along with Port staff and commissioners. The eelgrass was removed from an area that will be dredged for the NOAA MOC-P project. The Oregon Coast Aquarium will nurture the plants until they can be replanted at the mitigation site in the spring.
