Oyster Gardening

Are you a Brevard County resident with a dock along the Indian River Lagoon? Sign-up to be an OYSTER GARDENER and help Brevard Zoo’s Restore Our Shores program bring back Brevard’s oyster population!

We know how popular oyster mat making is! Unfortunately, we are researching new methodologies and will no longer offer oyster mat workshops until further notice.

If you’re interested in alternative programs please email Kate Brown.


Come help us make oyster gardening habitats for next year’s oyster gardeners!


Come help us make supplies for next year’s oyster reef builds!
