Baltimore Oyster Gardening Events

Downtown Sailing Center and Baltimore Marine Centers' Lighthouse Point

Baltimore, Maryland

In 2015, the Great Baltimore Oyster Partnership, a collaboration between the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore's Healthy Harbor Initiative and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, set an audacious goal to plant five million oysters in Baltimore's Patapsco River. It met that goal in July 2019, but the work continues. The hope is to restore a small part of the oyster population that once was a fundamental part of Baltimore and Maryland's identity, economy, and ecosystem, and also to help educate Baltimore residents about the important role that oyster play in providing habitat and filtering the water.

Youth ages 16 years old and up are welcome.
