Join The Watershed Project for happy hour on Friday, August 16th. We're taking over (get it? invasive) Tonic bar and 100% of tips go to our visionary Living Shoreline Program! This is a free event, so tip your bartenders. With your help we can get more students on field trips, and more native oyster restoration projects started in the San Francisco Bay. So come, invite your friends, and join our oyster community for a fun night out!
Why: The Living Shoreline connects people to the waters of the Bay. With your support, Wild! Oysters, our high school program, changes students' perceptions of their environment. Check out the image above! The graphic shows how students thought about oysters at the beginning of Wild! Oysters, and how their thinking shifted by the end of the program, with students considering oysters as being part of their environment.
Oysters were once plentiful in the San Francisco Bay. Unfortunately, due to ecosystem degradation in the Bay, the native oyster population has plummeted over the last 150 years. Oysters are a keystone species and provide serveral ecosystem benefits, including providing habitat for other small critters living in the Bay. Our program educates youth and adults about the importance and benefits of our native oyster restoration project in Richmond, CA.
Where: Tonic bar located at 2360 Polk Street, San Francisco, 94109. We will see you there from 6pm - 9pm.
