This event is for all returning oyster gardeners to pick up their fresh oyster spat to restock their gardens for the fall/winter season. (If you are new to CBF's oyster gardening program, please check our new oyster gardener workshop schedule.)
This is also an opportunity to pick up any additional materials you may need or return any oysters you may have tended to over the summer.
The spat will be handed out in mesh bags and can be a bit slimy, so please remember to bring a bucket, bin, or a few trash bags to line your car with.
See our spat distribution event page for our full list of distribution dates and locations.
Registration is required. Each oyster gardener (or oyster gardening family) should submit their own registration form.
For questions, please contact our oyster gardening team at MDoystergardening@cbf.org.
*Volunteers understand that all spat-on-shell provided by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation remains the property of CBF and is to be returned at the end of the growing season.
