Dr. Keith D. Johnson and his summer research students Blake Ford and Rojesh Shrestha beat out nine other teams including the University of Maryland, NOAA, Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Smithsonian at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Annual Oyster Olympics. The event was held at the Oyster Restoration Center in Shady Side, MD on July 10, 2015. Teams competed in a number of events including cage-building, oyster shell bag filling, shell shaking, a scavenger hunt and a canoe race. It was a great opportunity to learn about restoration, network with others working in the field, and help get materials prepared for further restoration while having some fun. GO MUSTANGS!!
