Oyster giveaway is starting soon

The Puget Sound Restoration Fund’s Oyster-Give-Away Program starts on Dec. 1 and will run through Sept. 30.

Residents who get their septic systems inspected and maintained can reserve a dozen free oysters from the Port Madison Community Shellfish Farm.

The program is intended to provide tasty incentives for addressing water quality issues affecting harvest. The oysters will be distributed in spring; participants need to sign up and provide a copy of an inspection certificate to receive the free oysters.

The Oyster-Give-Away Program is made possible by Kitsap Public Health District, the Bloedel Reserve, and Port Madison Community Shellfish Farm.
