Fall 2015 Spat delivery
All of our spat have now been distributed to the gardeners and the oysters should be bedded down for the winter. Don't forget to watch for the low tides and freezing temperatures, if this turns out to be a cold winter.

Not yet an oyster gardener?
Workshops are held in the fall (due to the availability of spat).
Here is information on how to become a gardener. To sign up to become an oyster gardener beginning in the fall of 2016, contact CBF at MDoystergardening@cbf.org

OThe West River Improvment Association, (WRIA), is dedicated to the principle that, by working together, residents of Galesville and the surrounding area can protect and improve the quality of life in the community, including the West River watershed

OThe Shady Side Peninsula Association, is the association of citizens' groups and communities on the Shady Side Peninsula

Citizens in the West River community are establishing individual oyster gardens with guidance from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to provide new one-year old oysters to the santuaries in the coming years.
