Please join us on Earth Day to build an oyster shell bar, plant native grasses, and clean up the shoreline of Lassing Park! The oyster shell project involves shoveling fossilized shell into mesh bags, transporting the bags by boat and placing them on the shoreline to create a series of oyster bars. This project is an effort to restore lost habitat systems to the bay, prevent further erosion of the shoreline, and improve water quality through natural biological filtration. Additionally, we will be planting native grasses and picking up trash from the shoreline.

We will meet at 8:30 AM at the northern end of Lassing Park. 

On the street along Beach Dr. It will be a busy morning, so you may have to park and walk a bit to get to the meeting location.

What to Wear/Bring:
Volunteers should wear long-sleeved shirts, clothing you don't mind getting wet and dirty, closed-toe shoes or water shoes, hat.  Please bring work gloves if you have them (they will provide used work gloves if needed), sunscreen, bugspray, and a water bottle (ice water will be provided to fill up your bottle).
