On Monday, volunteers from T. Rowe Price and observers from Morgan Stanley helped sow over 3,000 seed oysters in the Patapsco River. The Great Baltimore Oyster Partnership, now in its second year, has brought hundreds of business people together to tend to seed oysters in cages lining the Inner Harbor over the winter to be then seeded in the spring as part of the Healthy Harbor Initiative, and organized by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore.
