In September of 2012, the winter oyster bars of Apalachicola Bay opened to reveal a severe lack of oysters. A group of paddlers were preparing to partake in RiverTrek 2012, a 105 mile kayak adventure down the river to bring awareness to the issues facing it. One year later, as we prepare for RiverTrek 2013, we look back at a turbulent year for one of our area's most important natural resources. Students will be able to see the various efforts being put forth to save an important natural resource and what a year’s time has brought to Apalachicola.
