September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ms. Barbara Albrecht will present a program entitled “Citizens, Oysters, and Changing the Culture through Project Oyster Pensacola.”
Ms. Albrecht is the President of the Bream Fishermen Association, the Director of the Panhandle Watershed Alliance, the Coastal Community Coordinator at the University of West Florida and the Conservation Chairperson for our Audubon chapter.
This program was originally scheduled for April 25, 2019 but there was very poor attendance due to a deluge and it is rescheduled by popular demand.
The Bream Fishermen Association developed a partnership with the Pensacola Oyster Company to use oysters as biological indicators in local estuarine waters.
The aim of the research project was to relate oyster growth to land use change and other environmental variables.
Ms. Albrecht will report on survival and growth of the oysters and on water quality data during their deployment.
Our monthly chapter program meetings are held at 7:00 p.m., room 2142, the Baroco Science Center (Bldg. 21 ), Pensacola State College, 21 Airport Blvd., Pensacola, FL 32504 unless otherwise noted.
The meeting room is located across the breezeway from the planetarium.
Refreshments are provided. Guests are welcome!
