Oyster Gardening Event

June 23 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Lake Maury in Spring

New Gardener Seminar: 6–7 PM
Oyster Round-up: 6–8 PM

Become an oyster gardener!

Help Improve Virginia’s Waterways Oysters restore waterways and filter up to 50 gallons of water a day. They also provide key habitat for fish, shellfish, and plants. You can make a difference by volunteering to grow oysters from your dock or a marina—a low-maintenance and fun family activity. After a year, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation will place your oysters on a Virginia sanctuary reef near you. CBF’s oyster gardening seminar teaches oyster growing basics to new gardeners and provides them with a growing setup and baby oysters. On the same day, CBF holds “round-ups” where returning gardeners can swap out their full-grown oysters for new baby oysters.
