Stories from the Bay
You’re Invited: “Shell-a-Brate” Delaware Bay Resiliency
You and your family are “whelk-come” to join American Littoral Society and Conserve Wildlife Foundation for our Shell-a-Bration on Saturday, April 4 at South Reeds Beach on the Delaware Bayshore.
Enjoy a bonfire on the beach, BBQ and oysters, and family friendly activities like a Green Eggs in the Sand Easter Egg Hunt! This family fun day and volunteer event will be held from 2-6 PM, with remarks from conservation leaders and project discussion at 4:30 PM.
Volunteers will help us build an oyster reef throughout the day. The approximately 500 foot oyster reef offshore will be built to test whether the reef bars help reduce beach erosion and create calmer water for spawning horseshoe crabs.
The Shell-a-Bration is rain or shine. Please park along South Reeds Beach Drive, but be mindful of local residents’ driveways. Dress appropriately; wear closed-toed shoes, warm clothes, and bring a change of dry clothes. Gloves will be provided. The Shell-a-Bration will be a picnic-style event, so please bring blankets and chairs.
Join us at 2 South Reeds Beach Drive, South Reed Beach, Cape May Court House, New Jersey.
