Ways to Volunteer
Native Oyster Restoration Project
Project #1- Watershed Action Lab
Do you have a smart phone and spend time near or on the water?
Calling all kayakers, paddle boarders, dog walkers, hikers, runners, tree climbers and those who enjoy aimless walks. We need help documenting all the nooks and crannies of our waterways, accessible by foot and by sea. We want to map where oysters currently are and where they end up.
Oyster Shell Pickup
We need your help picking up airtight buckets with oyster shells from local restaurants. We are looking to set up weekly pickups powered by volunteers.
These shells will be used to help baby oyster repopulate and clean our waterways and coast.
Do you know a friend or local restaurant who would help restore the Bay?
If you live on a canal or waterway that enters Biscayne Bay and want to hang some Oyster Lines, Oyster Cages, or Water Quality Sensors to help our efforts let us know!
You have a very special role to play in helping make this project a success.
Lets Connect, send us your details below!
Are you a maker or the arts and craft type? We need help making vertical oyster gardens from cured oyster shells we have collected from local restaurants.
All you need is a drill.
You can do it at community events or pick up cured shells and do it from home
At Watershed Action Lab, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Adapt to Thrive
Watershed Action Lab's vision is to activate citizens to bring health back to their watershed. By promoting soil health & improved water quality we can regenerate habitats, recharge aquifers, fight saltwater intrusion and strengthen resiliency for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
We believe in empowering individuals and local communities through citizen science across the watershed.
We believe that agricultural, ranch, and fisheries management practices that are regenerative will leave land stewards with higher profit margins as well as promote water storage on the land, healthy living soils, and improve water quality for all.
Successful Crowdfunding Effort
Thank you to all the members of our community who donated to the crowdfunding effort. our hope is to return native oysters to our waterways and our beautiful Biscayne Bay.
