Participatory Science ProjectTracking Oyster Growth in the Rhode River

Baby oysters growing on an oyster shell.

Help us restore Maryland's oyster reefs by tracking the growth and survival of baby oysters!

The West and Rhode Riverkeeper currently works with volunteers to restore Maryland's oyster reefs, but has never collected data about the ways that we might be able to help more oysters survive or grow larger. Our SERC Participatory Science team is teaming up with the Riverkeeper and South River High School to develop best practices for oyster growth while being time and resource-efficient.
