All About Oysters

Sometimes referred to as ” ecosystem engineers” or “vacuums of the Bay ,” oysters play a critical role in keeping our Inland Bays clean, as well as providing structural support for reefs for additional marine life. Join us for a closer look at these amazing bivalves, including their anatomy, life cycle and function. Learn more about oyster gardening efforts throughout the Inland Bays and the impact of restoration efforts on this crucial mollusk. All ages welcome.

Participants will be in and around the water, so please wear clothes & shoes that can get wet and/or sandy. Closed-toe shoes are encouraged. Please remember to 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. By registering for this program you will be added to the Center’s e-newsletter.
