March 27, 2013 | Author: admin | Category: News | Comments (0)

Here is what to expect on Saturday, April 5 and Saturday May 10 from 8:30-11:30 at Goose Island State Park:

 

1)      Registration Booth: There will be a sign-in table to collect the information of volunteers and to collect photo releases. A FREE t-shirt will be handed out at the sign in booth!

2)      The Stations:

a.       Station 1: Groups of 3 people will be creating bags out of mesh. They will roll out the mesh, measure it, cut it and tie it off. They will then hand the bag to the people at Station 2.

b.      Station 2: Groups of 2 people will be shoveling the oyster shells into the mesh bags. They will tie off the bag and hand to the people in Station 3.

c.       Station 3: Bags will be shuttled, using heavy-duty wagons, from Station 2 up to the staging area on  the Goose Island State Park fishing pier.

d.      Station 4: A line will be formed so that the bags will be handed down to the water where the bags will be placed in the new reef site.

3)      Food Table: TAMUCC, Water Street, and TSA are providing water and snacks for all volunteers.

 

What to Wear: Oyster shells can be very sharp! For this reason you MUST wear closed toed and backed shoes. Sneakers are best. Make sure you have a thick sole on the shoe. We are providing thick leather work gloves to protect your hands from any cuts. Don’t forget a hat.
