Oyster Gardening In Mississippi

Welcome to the home of the Mississippi Oyster Gardening Program. A volunteer based project which focuses on education, restoration/enhancement, and research by bringing the reef to the people. Established in 2016, the program is now in its third year of operation. It focuses on developing relationships with citizen scientists to install and maintain oyster gardens for use in restoration and enhancement efforts throughout coastal Mississippi waters. Our Gardeners, Garden Adopters, and agency partners make the program successful, and there are opportunities for everyone to get involved. Feel free to explore our website, learn what we do, and if you want to join us we are always recruiting new Gardeners, Adopters, and corporate partners.

2018 Season

The 2018 oyster gardening program was a success! In 2018 we planted 37,500 oysters, which restored 1.85 acres of reef.
