4th Annual Chesapeake Bay Foundation Reefball Event
April 9, 2014

Members of the YRSCB met at the VIMS boat basin on the morning of April 9th to construct oyster reefballs that will be used in Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) Projects in the Norfolk area. Jackie Shannon of CBF gave instruction, then volunteers got to work unveiling reefballs that had been made the day before, then reconstructing the molds in preparation for the concrete truck and a new set of reefballs. It was hard work but a very productive and rewarding effort at the end of the day.
