Live Free and Shuck: Oyster Farm Tour & Demonstration

Ever wanted to know how an oyster grows? Or how an oyster farm is run? Or why this keystone species is important to the ecosystem of the bay? Join Laura, owner of Fox Point Oysters, for a guided, interactive discussion about oysters and oyster farming, while standing knee-deep in the beautiful tidal waters of Little Bay, part of the Great Bay estuary. See how aquaculture gear is used to grow productive oyster yields, and learn how these friendly bivalves help protect our waters. A shucking demonstration will give participants the chance to learn from a pro to be able to show off to their friends and family. Live Free and Shuck is an educational experience you will not forget!

When: Tuesday, September 21st, sessions at 10 AM and 12 PM

What to bring: Wear clothing you don’t mind getting wet or muddy along with water shoes, boots, or waders. If the tide is up we may be ankle deep in the bay or standing on soft mud. Flip flops and sandals are not safe. Make sure to have a towel and dry footwear to change into after the demonstration.

Additional details: The location is on a muddy shoreline with no restroom available. This demonstration will require you to walk down stairs to access the shoreline. If you are not comfortable balancing while walking through muddy, ocean water, you may want to sit this one out.
