The Mon Tiki Floating Classroom Project Inaugural Outing: Seeding Juvenile Clams and Oysters in Our Local Waters
I first had the idea for the Mon Tiki Floating Classroom Project in January of 2011, in about exactly the same spot on the Napegue Stretch as I had my (humbling) Sputnik Moment nine years earlier.
Not quite three years later, Mon Tiki is a reality, and so is the Floating Classroom Project. It’s a nice feeling when you get something in your head that you want to do, but you’re not sure if it will ever happen, but then it does.
Nicer still when it wraps up commerce, community service, local governance, and personal satisfaction into a neat little package: a local business hosting a local youth group to enhance the local waters with resources and expertise provided by a local government agency.
