This Weekend-Oyster Reefing- A Blast !

From Casey Sanders...

Hello GEORGIA volunteers,
We will be planting the oyster reef on Tybee again this Saturday, May 9th. We will meet at 1:00 pm at the 'boat loading site' (map). You will need to bring your sunscreen, bug repellent, change of clothes, and shoes with laces :-) We will provide the gloves, water and snacks. Also, I'm working on a carpool system from Brunswick so that volunteers can ride up together in the UGA van if they are interested in doing so.Everyone who has joined us has had a blast!! It is a lot of fun to work in the creek- we see all kinds of creatures (sea turtles, coral whips, egrets, whelk egg cases, flounder, etc.) while arranging oyster shell bags on the banks. It is also an opportunity to get outside and get dirty while helping out our coastal environment. There are pictures of past reef plantings embedded in our map.
Please RSVP to me via email by 5 PM Friday if you would like to join us, and I will then send you complete details on where to park, what to expect, what to bring, etc.
