August 13th Walking Tour of Plum Island, North Point

Bill Sargent,

“Sunday’s Walking Tour of Plum Island North….some local folks, as well as visitors from New Mexico joined us this week! With erosion season coming, our guests became citizen scientists & helped to measure the distance from the pergola at the end of the main boardwalk, to the ridge of sand nearest the water’s edge (87 feet)…we will continue to measure as the season continues….come join us!”

Experiment was to see if pie plate would raise water temperature enough to induce spawning. Works well with bay scallops and surf clams. Seemed equivocal with blue mussels. We might have needed other mussels to set off the reaction.
