May 1 – May 31 all-day

Join our partner Tampa Bay Watch to help build oyster reef balls at the Tampa Bay Watch Marine Education Center and install them at Lassing Park. Reef balls stabilize shorelines and prevent erosion while creating habitat similar to natural oyster communities found along shoreline areas throughout Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay Watch is also recruiting volunteers to build an oyster shell bar to restore 2D Island in May. Go to https://tampabaywatch.org/volunteer-main/scheduled-projects/
