Join us for an oyster shell bagging at the Coastal Center and help bag oyster shells that will eventually be deployed into the Indian River Lagoon!

Stop by Mulligan's Beach House restaurant in Stuart every Thursday evening in August from 5-8 pm to support Florida Oceanographic! 

Bacteria, algae and — believe it or not — millions of dead clams: It's all in the water along the Treasure Coast; and it's all nasty.
