Having a ball on Bayshore

The oyster community's purpose is to improve water quality by filtering the water, create foraging and sanctuary areas for fish and wildlife, and promote storm protection. This phase-two event is a continuation of a community-based project that took place in March 2003 located just to the north of this site.

Members from the 6th Air Mobility Wing, along with staff and volunteers from Tampa Bay Watch, Inc., participated in an oyster dome shoreline enhancement project Monday.

The team installed more than 100 domes.
