DNR seeks oyster program volunteers

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is looking for communities to help raise baby oysters for the 2013 season through the Marylanders Grow Oysters program, now in its sixth year.

Volunteers last year raised more than 2 million new oysters that were planted in sanctuaries throughout Maryland waters. DNR is now seeking local coordinators willing to organize the program in additional rivers, creeks and Chesapeake Bay areas for the 2013 season.

Interested persons are asked to download a printable application or contact cjudy@dnr.state.md.us for more information. Applications are due by May 15.
