Tampa Bay Watch is recruiting volunteers to help install oyster reef balls on the shoreline of MacDill Air Force Base.

This is a heavy project as reef balls weigh 200 pounds each. Two people will carry one reef ball at a time to install it on the shoreline. Reef balls stabilize shorelines and prevent erosion while creating habitat similar to natural oyster communities found along shoreline areas throughout Tampa Bay. Click here to visit our webpage to learn more about reef balls

The deadline for volunteer registration is one week prior to the project to allow time for security clearance, so you'll be pre-approved for entry. Your driver's license information is required for MacDill to perform the clearance.
