This poster was created by Mr. Luke Simpson's Advanced Placement Environmental Science class at Nauset Regional High School. It reports the findings of and describes the activities the students did in the field for the oyster study done at the Herring River and Mayo Creek in conjunction with Friends of Herring River. It is the third year students have done the study.
The poster was used this winter at the Cape Cod Natural History Conference, which is "a full day conference that offers an engaging, exciting, and fun way to learn about local research projects, conservation efforts, and local environmental organizations." It is held at Cape Cod Community College and hosted by Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife.
