“Oysters are nothing gaudy, devoid of charisma, a true and literal stick-in-the-mud. And yet this humble bivalve has inspired piracy, shooting wars, two centuries of environmental and social conflict, and libraries of legislation.” – Tom Horton

This Earth Month, join us for an online screening of “A Passion for Oysters.” This 45-minute documentary chronicles the wild and convoluted story of Chesapeake oysters, through the eyes of watermen, scientists and historians. Discover how these silent shellfish have generated so much controversy, and where their best hope for the future lies. After the viewing, join SERC fisheries biologist Matt Ogburn, who was featured in the film, for a Q&A discussion. Produced by Tom Horton, Dave Harp and Sandy Cannon-Brown of the Bay Journal.

This event will be recorded! Closed captions will be available during the live event and on the recording. By signing up on Zoom, you’ll be able to join live and receive a link to the recording approximately 1 week after the live webinar.
