Volunteers passing oyster shell bags to be installed on the shoreline.

About

Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting volunteers to install oyster shell bars at McKay Bay. The project involves shoveling fossilized shell into mesh bags, transporting the bags via boat and placing oyster shell bags on the shoreline to create a series of oyster bars. It is pretty physical labor with oyster shell bags weighing around 30 pounds each, therefore the miminum age to participate is 15 years old.
