Habitat restoration and water quality improvements!

Students just "get it" when you talk about the importance of oyster habitat in relation to water quality. Lisa spent most of her time drilling oysters for reef building and teaching Zoo visitors about the importance of these activities.

From Lisa: "Brevard Oyster Restoration hosts monthly classes to show the community how to make the mats needed for the Oyster Restoration program.  I assisted in setting up for the class and facilitating the class of about 20 attendees.  After the class, I went to Brevard Zoo to their Oyster Restoration exhibition to drill holes in the oysters needed for the mats, while educating to the zoo guests about the Oyster Restoration program and the role it plays in restoration of the Indian River Lagoon ecosystem."
