IRL Clam Restoration Project

Right here in our back yard the Indian River Lagoon has been hit hard by a decimation of the clam population. These clams are an essential part of the filtration system helping improve the water quality and prevent devastating algae blooms.

The Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project is aiming to help reintroduce native clam species to target areas in hopes that they reproduce and flourish. The project research is being conducted by The Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience at the University of Florida.

This past Saturday we were honored to be a part of their fundraising efforts with a fun evening to help raise money for the Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project. Festivities included a Kid’s Fishing Derby where fun was had by many.
