The Boater's Lounge - S2E5: Save the Oysters! feat. Kellie Fiala

This week Allie and Andy visited Inner Harbor Marina to talk to our partner Kellie Fiala to learn more about these incredible members of our ecosystem and hear about Kellie’s work as the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Oyster Restoration Program Coordinator . In this episode hear…

  • Kellie’s background and start with CBF
  • some of the biggest issues affecting the Bay right now
  • oyster program basics and WHY we need to help protect oysters
  • the difference between oyster restoration & gardening
  • and how you can get involved in this initiative!

We know you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as we did!

**Fun fact: Kellie has seen one pearl in her time working with oysters. And don’t worry – it is still fine to eat these molluscs, just throw the shells back in the Bay!
