Last Wednesday, a group of volunteers made the best out of an otherwise grey and drizzly day by building oyster cages with our collaborator,Oyster Recovery Partnership(ORP). New friendships were formed over pizza, music, and a shared love of the Chesapeake Bay. (Plus a couple of Flying Dog Chesapeake Wheat beers -- in addition to being tasty, the proceeds directly benefit ORP!)
When we talk about restoring and protecting the Chesapeake Bay watershed, we understand it can feel like a daunting task to start contributing. For residents and businesses on the water, Live Water Foundation, in partnership with Severn River Association (SRA) and the Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP), have you covered! It’s called Marylanders Grow Oysters (MGO). The MGO program is specifically designed so you can help repopulate the Severn River with oysters by growing them on your pier.
