What a day!
This year’s Oyster Delivery couldn’t have gone better. Because oysters cannot be out of the water for more than a few hours, coordinating the deliveries can be somewhat of a logistical symphony. Fortunately, we were able to deliver cages to all of our 32 households throughout Talbot & Queen Annes.
After only a week of having their cages, we already have quite a few of our growers logging their results on our website. Our growers are the best!
Thank you to our volunteers!
Although we delivered over 100 cages this year, The Oyster Reef Recovery Initiative couldn’t have done it without the help of our fabulous volunteers! A special thanks goes out to the following people:
Volunteers: Carl Doll, Bob Barton, Bob Lucas, Harvey Stewart, John Prahl, Mike Payne, Dudley Soulsman, Bob Bowers, Jim Hoffman, Lee Hoffman, Jeff Downs
Eglseder Wealth Management Group, Inc. Staff – Scott Eglseder, Kelsey Harned, Jenika Downs, Kim White, Bertha Bryan
To sum the day up… Our Founder said it best
“We are very excited about the 300% increase in the number of oyster growers that we were able to enlist between the first and second years of our initiative. Our goal for next year’s growing season is to once again triple the number of growers and cages participating in our program. We are grateful for the enthusiastic help of our volunteers. Through our initiative, we are determined to make a positive difference in the health of the Chesapeake Bay” – Scott Eglseder
We still need volunteers!
