Hockey sticks and oyster habitats
The next meeting of the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club will take place on Jan. 13 at 1:45 p.m. at The Community House, at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. It will begin with an auction of high-quality sea shells. Bring your cash or check. The featured speaker will be Bob Wasno from the FGCU Vester Field Station. Wasno will illustrate how broken hockey sticks and reducing water pollution, which may seem unrelated, have been combined to clean up coastal waterways by creating artificial oyster reefs through a collaborative program (Rink2Reef) between FGCU’s Hockey Club and the NHL’s Green Initiative Program. Refreshments will be served and door prizes awarded. Free and open to the public.
