Summer Camp: Estuary Week (10-12 year old)
- Family & Education
- GTM Research Reserve Environmental Education Center, Ponte Vedra Beach Florida
EcoGeek and EcoGeezer Series
From now through April, our program will focus on oyster restoration projects across the country. Did you know that a single oyster can effectively filter water at a rate of about 2 gallons per hour? These seemingly simple creatures are incredibly efficient at filtering toxins out of our water. They form thick, sturdy reef systems that provide integral habitat for estuarine animals while simultaneously protecting our shorelines against coastal erosion. Oyster reef restoration efforts have proven to significantly improve water quality and shoreline stabilization. As GTM Research Reserve continues with its oyster reef restoration efforts, we have partnered with South Slough NERR in Oregon to share research, methods, and discoveries in oyster reef restoration projects. Come join us online as we video conference with South Slough NERR about their efforts to restore native Olympia Oysters in Oregon! To watch us LIVE, visit us at http://gtmnerr.org/EcoGeek-Series.php on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3:00 p.m. If you can't tune in for the live conference, the video will remain on our YouTube Channel for you to watch at your leisure.
