  • This Week in the Watershed: Spanning Generations

  • Gardeners Restore Reefs, Too

    May 25, 2017

    On a breezy spring day, Claire Neubert hauled a wire cage full of oysters onto her dock on Elizabeth Lake at the top of the Hampton River. This miniature oyster reef was full of life. Barnacles sprouted from shells. Little fish squirmed among the oysters. Tiny crabs crawled into the crevices.
