Cooler weather means oyster season in Eastern North Carolina! Sylvan Heights Bird Park is hosting its first Annual Oyster Roast to raise funds to support the Park's mission of conservation and education. Tickets include shrimp, oysters, slaw, hush puppies, beer, wine and entertainment. We will also have a non seafood option as well as a vegitarian option. Did you know that the staff use ground up oyster shells to feed nesting birds? The shells provide critical calcium to nesting shore birds and waterfowl. So come eat oysters and help the birds!
