Spring 2017 Oyster Return
Our 2017 oyster return day will be Sunday May 21.
Bring your oysters to the Galesville Town Dock between 1:00 and 4:00 PM.
Please have your oysters out of the cages or, at least, loose so that they can easily be transferred to our buckets.
Unless the weather is very hot, they will be ok out of the water for a day or two, if necessary.
If it is very hot, you can loosen and remove them and clean the cage, then put them back in the water.
If you cannot come to our event, bring your oysters to a CBF event. The details and schedule are here
or contact us at
