Volunteers Needed for Oyster Reef Restoration [June 4th]

Volunteer Announcement

From the organizers:

The TOH oyster restoration program has been going on for 6 years now and each year we add additional oyster reef structures to our permitted areas in the bay.  We could really use some help getting some new reef material together to “set” our oysters upon.

We are hoping to get around 10 people together on Saturday, June 4th at 9am-12pm at our facility located at West Marina (where the big piles of shell are)  in Point Lookout.

We could use some help getting bags of shell together which will be used to construct oyster reefs later in the year.

The work would be pretty straight forward. We need help scooping clam shells from a pile, funneling them into mesh bags,  and stacking them neatly nearby.  Each bag could weigh between 10-20 lbs when full of shell.  This bagged shell material will used to construct the reefs later this summer.
