Three years ago, students from Dunloggin Middle School went on a field trip (we all remember those, right?) to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. They were learning about the Bay’s ecosystem, and while dredging an oyster reef found only one live oyster. The students were concerned and curious, so, along with a few lucky teachers, they researched Maryland’s oyster harvesting history, and began to understand just how important oysters are to the overall health of the Chesapeake Bay.
