3rd Annual Drayton Harbor Shell-ebration
December 1st marks the two year anniversary of lifted harvesting restrictions on 810 acres of Drayton Harbor shellfish growing area and I am happy to invite you to the 3rd Annual Drayton Harbor Shell-ebration!
GSSC is very honored to be receiving an award this year for our contributions to water quality in the Drayton Harbor Watershed and our work to form so many young watershed stewards in Whatcom County and which played an integral part of the shellfish growing area recovery in Drayton Harbor.
Come celebrate with us! Delicious oysters will be provided courtesy of Drayton Harbor Oyster Company and there will be additional refreshments and activities.
