Volunteers Needed for Oyster Bar Construction Project
Volunteers have fun while performing important tasks.
The Tampa Bay Watch and Audubon of Florida will create 300 feet of new oyster shell reef habitat along the shoreline of Green Key on April 15th, 16th, and 17th, with the help of Canterbury School of Florida, the Bay Area Canoe and Kayak Fishing Club, and dedicated community volunteers.
Green Key is a small island located south of the mouth of the Alafia River and Bullfrog Creek in southeastern Hillsborough Bay. Members of the public are encouraged to participate in this and other habitat restoration projects. "Every volunteer who has moved oyster shell to create reefs with us on past projects has spoken passionately about their connection to our bay's special resources," remembers Hodgson. "These projects provide an opportunity for local residents to make a difference, in an incremental but real way, that improves bay water quality, wildlife values, and habitats."
