Become a Baltimore oyster gardener!
Join the Great Baltimore Oyster Partnership on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 9:00am - 1:00pm to contribute to Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration efforts. You will learn why oysters are so important to the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem while helping them reach their new home in the Patapsco River. We will count the baby oysters (spat) that have been growing in the Inner Harbor for a year and take them by boat to a protected oyster sanctuary, where they will live out the rest of their lives! (Do expect to get dirty.)
Volunteers will also act as community scientists as they learn how to properly identify and measure the spat, so we can monitor their growth and survival throughout the season and long-term over the years.
