About the Event
Join us to help count baby oysters as part of a restoration project! We’ll have several small cages filled with oyster shells that have oyster spat (baby oysters) attached to them. These baby oysters are going to loving households around Great Bay for 2 months this summer where they will thrive and be protected from predators. We need your help to count and measure oyster spat from these cages to get an idea of the numbers of oysters per cage before delivery and again after pick up. Once we get the oysters back to the lab in late summer, we’ll need to count and measure them again. Eventually, these oysters will be placed on a carefully chosen restoration area in Great Bay.
