FORT NORFOLK, VA - Geographer Karin Dridge (right) from the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Jessica Grell from Seatack Elementary School in Virginia Beach, add baby oysters to a bag that will be placed in Taylor Floats. Grell, a 4th grade teacher at Seatack Elemtary, donated 14,000 baby oysters, or spat. The data compilation by Grell’s fourth grade students will begin next week with a baseline data collection and continue until next June 2013. At that time, these district oysters will be of sufficient size and will once again placed on the breakwater reef.
