Tour of WEI Aquaculture (Oyster) Lease (Friday, 3/27, 10:30am-2:00pm)  

This class will travel by boat to Skipper Bay to the WEI management area oyster lease. There, participants will open student cages, observe and discuss the oysters’ processes and see first-hand how oysters help the environment while bringing jobs to an economically depressed area. Participants will gain understanding of how oyster aquaculture is helping the Wakulla community. Participants have the option to get into the water or stay on the boat as the instructor brings cages to them. Class size limit: 7.

REQUIREMENT: Participants need to dress in comfortable clothing and wear gym shoes. Hats are recommended. This is a working boat for WEI without seats. Some members will be able to sit on two of the coolers located on the boat. The rest will need to stand. Please bring water and lunch if you’d like. WEI has hand-holds on the boat so members can be safe as we travel.
