Discover the power of the oyster! Sometimes referred to as “nature’s engineers” or “vacuums of the bay,” oysters play a critical role in keeping our bays clean. They also provide structural support for reefs for additional marine life. Participants will get a closer look at these bivalves in action, watching as they filter water. People will also explore the beach, where they will catch and observe other filter-feeding organisms.
Attendees will have the opportunity to explore in and around the water – it is recommended that you wear clothes & shoes that can get wet/sandy. Closed-toe shoes are encouraged. Please bring water, sunscreen, and insect repellant, if desired since the Preserve can be buggy.
Please note: Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian present at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.
This program is weather permitting. Attendance is free and walk-ups are welcome. Questions? Contact Jackie Knoll at firstname.lastname@example.org
