National Park Service and Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists will hold an informational meeting about the Kalaloch razor clam population and projections about this year’s razor clam harvest.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 9 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Forks Library.

The biologists will discuss the status of the Kalaloch razor clam population, results of on-going research and monitoring of the razor clam population, and the forecast for the potential 2008-2009 harvest season.

Kalaloch Beach in Olympic National Park will remained closed until at least spring 2009 in order to allow the small clams that make up most of the population the opportunity to grow to a harvestable size.

Status and harvest predictions for the state’s southern razor clam beaches will also be discussed.
