About the Event

Have you ever wondered what oysters are up to? Where do they live, and what types of animals make their home among them? Come learn and explore at the new Durham's Community Oyster Garden with our Oyster Workshops! The Durham Community Oyster Garden is located at the Town Landing where The Nature Conservancy (TNC) will be installing cages full of young oysters. TNC will be hosting oyster workshops for the public, where they will be doing presentations about oysters and the environment. There will be interactive activities, including examining inside the oyster cages and exploring what types of animals and plants occur in an oyster habitat. If they like, volunteers will also be able to help collect data on the oysters in the garden to help in an ongoing conservation study.

The event is free, but spots are limited to 6 per event because of Covid Restrictions. Luckily the events will be happening through September!

*Space is very limited for this event. Please only sign up one person at a time and refresh the page in-between.

What to bring

Wear your outdoor clothes and bring anything you would need for a day outside (sunscreen, bug spray, water, snacks, etc.)

Youth Instructions

Youth volunteers are welcome and encouraged to join! While very little ones may not be able to participate in every activity (like writing down oyster data), there will be a range of activities and presentations that guarantee there will be something for everyone.
