About

Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting volunteers to install oyster domes on the shoreline of MacDill Air Force Base on March 1 & 2 from 9am - noon on each day. This project involves heavy lifting of approximately 75 pounds, as each oyster dome weighs around 150 pounds. Each dome will be installed with two people sharing the weight and unloading the domes from a trailer onto the shoreline.

The goal of Tampa Bay Watch’s Community Oyster Reef Enhancement (CORE) program is to increase the oyster population in Tampa Bay and at the same time, provide habitats for small organisms, prevent erosion, improve water quality and promote fish and wildlife habitats.

We will meet within MacDill Air Force Base. Driving directions will be emailed to you in a reminder message prior to the event. The minimum age to participate is 18 years old. You must have a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration, and car insurance to drive onto the base. We'll ask you for some personal info in the volunteer registration process: your full name, the state who issued your driver's license, driver's license number, & the expiration date of your driver's license for MacDill's security clearance.
