Kid’s Day: Discovery Bay – All About Oysters
Discover the power of the oyster! Sometimes referred to as “ecosystem 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.

Perfect for participants of all ages! Kid’s days allow children of all ages to connect with nature and explore by utilizing hands-on learning!
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.
Accessibility: We’ll be walking about .25 mile to the beach and spending the majority of the program at the beach wading in the water.
This program is weather permitting. Attendance is free, pre-registration is encouraged. Questions? Contact Maddie Fox at email@example.com
