The Corn & Cray Project
Lobster of the River
Invasive Crayfish of Oregon
"Invasive species are plants, animals, or pathogens that are non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration, and who's introduction causes or is likely to cause harm." -USDA National Invasive Species Information Center
Through The Corn & Cray Project, Cattell House seeks to address the urgent need for control, and removal of invasive species in Oregon's waterways.
Invasive Crayfish decimate local Oregon fish populations and destroy native habitats. Here at Cattell House we have developed The Corn & Cray Project, aka "The CC Project" to address the invasive Crayfish outbreak in Oregon.
Plan of Attack
Invasive Crayfish decimate local Salmon!
We need a leg up on invasive crayfish!
By focusing restoration efforts on properties that have access to freshwater waterways The Corn & Cray Project will be able to establish long-lasting community resources while preserving native wildlife and habitat.
Permaculture and Crayfish
Catch. Count. Consume
By sharing our process of permaculture and by trapping crayfish, invasive crayfish identification, and native crayfish release we can create resource's that benefit the environment and the community.
Community Outreach & Food Relief
By serving invasive species through mobile food trucks and offering mobile cooking classes geared towards youth, "The CC Project" hopes to bring Food Relief to individuals and families in need. "The CC Project" seeks to bridge the gap between food insecurity and the invasive species outbreak.
