Lunch and Learn – Lecture

February 10, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 2:45 pm

Seeding the Future, Oysters and Stewardship on the Bayshore – presented by Lisa Calvo, Aquaculture Program Coordinator, New Jersey Sea Grant and Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory, Rutgers University.

Project PORTS: Promoting Oyster Restoration Through Schools is a unique community-based restoration program that gives K-12 students an opportunity to experience environmental stewardship first hand as they help restore critical oyster habitat. Developed and coordinated by the Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory, Rutgers University, Project PORTS utilizes the oyster as a vehicle to acquaint students, educators, and the broader community with the bayshore environments and the methodologies and science of a real world oyster restoration project. To date students have built 20,000 shell bags that have been used to construct 5-acres of oyster reef habitat.
Join us for a weekly exploration of topics important to our coastal and wetland ecosystems. Bring your lunch and The Wetlands Institute will provide coffee and dessert. Each week we will feature a different speaker and topic of discussion! Please check back for complete presenter details.

When: Fridays at 11:45am from January 6 – March 24, 2017.
Admission: $3 for members and $5 non-members

Please Note: There are NO Lunch and Learn presentations on January 27, February 24 and March 31 due to Covered Dish Dinner events.
