To engage area youth in oyster restoration, the St. Joe Community Foundation is granting the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance $18,300 to bring their Spat On! program to 250 high school students in Walton County.

In addition to providing monthly instruction and in-class lessons to foster understanding of oyster ecology and estuarine habitat, CBA will work with area high schools to build two new oyster reef breakwaters in the Choctawhatchee Bay.

“One of the best aspects of our program is that the students are learning and doing,” said Amanda Briant, CBA Education Coordinator.
