Oyster Restoration Through Community Participation

Summary

The outreach goal of this project is to increase awareness among the general public of the ecological importance of oysters and oyster reefs. Through interaction between Galveston Bay Foundation personnel, landowners, volunteers, the general public, and other partners, information on the ecological functions of oyster reefs will be disseminated to the community. Waterfront landowners will be contacted and invited to become involved in the project. Waterfront property owners will be asked if they would like to have an oyster reef sited in close proximity to their pier(s) and where exactly they think the reef(s) should be located.
