NC Coast Oyster Eco Tour
9am - 12pm
The tour begins at the Wanchese home of the North Carolina Coastal Federation. Hear about the federation’s mission to keep our coastal waters healthy and the oyster reef restoration projects that are so integral in that effort. Then go out on the water with oyster expert and James Beard award winning author Rowan Jacobsen and OBX mariculture pioneer Joey Daniels of Bodie Island Oyster. The group will then venture on a short boat ride out to Joey’s oyster lease in the Pamlico Sound. See his oyster farm in operation, pull up some oysters out of the water and see the incredible ecosystem that oyster farming generates. You’ll also have the chance sample some bivalves right at the source along with some liquid libation (21 and over only).
Advanced registration is required.
