How Oyster Farming Restored St. Jerome Creek

Published: October 11, 2019

Ten years ago, there were no oysters in the Severn River or in St. Jerome Creek.

But thanks to an oyster farmer’s dreams, the oysters are back!

How did it happen?

Hint: Think Skinny Dipper and Huckleberry.

You’re invited to hear how a commercial oyster farmer made it happen during the next John Wright Speaker Series, sponsored by the Severn River Association, on Tuesday night, Oct. 15, at Union Jack’s Pub in Parole.

Our special guest speaker will be Patrick Hudson, founder of the True Chesapeake Oyster Company, which has restored the creek with its oyster farming operation.

SRA will also present a brief update on oyster health in the Severn River based on data collected during water quality monitoring and observations noted during a spring dive to visit the oyster restoration reefs.
