Event description
Get your feet wet and hands dirty with the Goffinsville community science living shoreline monitoring program.

About this Event

In April, Florida Master Naturalist students and community volunteers deployed CORE (Community Oyster Reef Enhancement) modules at Goffinsville Park. These CORE modules help oysters recruit and provide habitat for crabs and fish. Overtime they help stabilize the shoreline and protect our coastlines.

Now that they've had a few months to grow, we're going to take a look at the progress. Join us for a short session about the Goffinsville Demonstration Living Shoreline being built and learn more about the science behind monitoring the health of this living shoreline.

Please wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy or wet. Bring water, hat, sunscreen and a positive attitude!

Please email Justina at jdacey@ufl.edu for further questions.
