  1. Discover the ecological and economic importance of Virginia's favorite bivalve. Oysters once existed in reefs so large that ships ran aground on them. Today's harvest is 1% of what it was 100 years ago. We will have interactive displays from organizations and businesses striving to increase their numbers. The Tidewater Oyster Gardeners Association, Capahosic Oyster Company, Virginia Institute of Marine Science and others will have displays about the work they do and information about this keystone creature of a healthy Chesapeake region.
