SRF Seeks Volunteers to Put 'Spat' Into River
Local residents can help the South River Federation (SRF) place baby oysters into local waterways to help increase the population.
The following post was submitted by staff from the South River Federation.
The arrival of fall means the arrival of spat (baby oysters) here along the South River. We have a pallet full of tiny spat waiting to be placed into the protective flood bucket cages for the next year.
The year old spat, currently filling over 400 flood buckets, are eagerly awaiting the move to the Harness Creek sanctuary where they will continue to expand the reef.
But, they can't get there without your help! Volunteer with the South River Federation on Sunday at 10 a.m. and help us take these oyster babies to their new home. Bring your friends, neighbors, or kids—just make sure you wear closed-toed shoes and bring a water bottle.
Please RSVP to email@example.com for directions to the project site in Annapolis.
