Become a False Creek Light Trapper!


April 15th to September 15th
Vancouver, British Columbia

Volunteer to help False Creek Friends monitor the Dungeness Crab light traps they have ‘adopted’ through BC’s influential marine science organization, Hakai Institute. This is a real, engaging STEM adventure for all ages.

 

Our mission is to find volunteers who can help us monitor the trap we have ‘adopted’. Every two days the trap needs to be removed from the waters of False Creek, and see whether the trap has attracted Dungeness Crab larvae.

The larvae are counted and measured, and the information collected is inputted into a digital database. This will go on all summer.

Each session will take approximately one hour. Families most welcome! This is a real, engaging STEM adventure for all ages – you never know what kind of outrageous creature you might find when the trap is opened up!
