Waterfowl Festival

I had a wonderful time at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland on Friday where I read from my books, Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay and Olly’s Treasure. It was great to see kids having fun at the festival and learning about oysters and waterfowl on the Chesapeake Bay. Children also made stick puppets of Olly the Oyster to take home with them! A big thank you to Cathy Fawell for coordinating and making this event so special.

‘Tis the Season for Oysters!

October marks the beginning of oyster season, a time when oysters are harvested by private and commercial fishermen, through to March of the next year. During the warmer months, oysters spawn and grow awaiting the next oyster harvest.

Oysters also provide a valuable service to the environment by filtering and cleaning the water! Olly the Oyster knows all about cleaning up the environment. For lesson plans and crafts that go along with Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay, you can click on the image below. Or, go to OllytheOyster.com/KidsPage.

Also, you can visit me and buy my books at the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland on November 8, 2019 from 11:30 to 2:00 at the Easton Middle School. I will be reading my books and leading a craft activity for kids.
