Oyster Spat Collection Program

Do you live on the Lynnhaven or know of someone who does? YOU can help gather important data that will help us better understand spat settlement in the Lynnhaven River. Volunteer and become a  spat collector!

 

Help Lynnhaven River NOW to catch baby oysters (spat) as we continue to restore oysters in the river.  This exciting program is fun, easy and it gives us the chance to capture valuable data about spat ( baby oyster) distribution throughout the Lynnhaven.  You will need access to a pier in the Lynnhaven River system in order to participate. Contact Helen@LRNow.org for more information
