Join us at the Shellfish Research Lab on Skidaway Island to learn about oyster ecology and local oyster aquaculture. Participants in the Georgia Oysters workshop will have opportunities to tour the state’s first oyster hatchery, talk with researchers, visit wild oyster reefs and participate in lab activities designed to increase their ability to be stewards of Georgia oysters and the estuary that supports our seafood industry. This workshop is part of the Coastal Stewards workshop series.

The Coastal Stewards program is a series of environmental education workshops targeted to adults living on or visiting the Georgia coast. The goal of the program is to engage adults in activities designed to improve their knowledge of coastal ecosystems, enhance understanding of current issues impacting coastal communities, and inspire stewardship of natural resources. Each workshop contains a mixture of lecture, lab and field activities using scientific and recreational equipment.
