9:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

Tampa Bay Watch in partnership with the City of St. Petersburg is recruiting volunteers to help install oyster reef balls on the shoreline of Lassing Park: BEACH DR. SE. & 18TH AVE. SE. ST. PETERSBURG, FL 33705.

Although this is a heavy project as reef balls weigh 200 pounds each, there will be tasks for all physical capabilities. We'll be loading reef balls onto carts to be placed 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.
