Shellfish in The Classroom
Shellfish in the Classroom is an education program for Elementary through High School students run by ReClam the Bay volunteers who are graduates of the Rutgers University Coastal Stewardship Class which is the core or the Barnegat Bay Shellfish Restoration Program. The goal of the program is to raise student awareness about the environmental problems of the Barnegat Bay Watershed and the actions they can take to improve it. This is accomplished through classroom lessons and a “hands-on” experience of growing shellfish, specifically oysters. Students learn the biology and habitat requirements of oysters, scientific techniques for monitoring oyster growth and the relationship of water quality in the Barnegat Bay Watershed to the health of shellfish.
