Flood Bucket Frenzy
Get ready for a Flood Bucket Frenzy! Grab your oldest pair of shoes, put on some old clothes and join us for one of our biggest and messiest volunteer events of the year!
The Federation Celebration starts on Sunday, October 9th with the “Flood Bucket Bonanza.” With over 700 “Flood Buckets”, we need your help distributing the oysters onto the sanctuary bed, as well as, filling the buckets with new baby oysters, called spat. Before the Federation became involved with the Marylanders Grow Oysters (MGO) program, John Flood, founder of the South River Federation, created his own oyster cages called Flood Buckets, where inside of oysters grow. Dumping these oysters might be a messy job, but you’ll get an up close and personal experience with what you can find in these cages—there’s more than just oysters growing in these Flood Buckets.

More About South River Federation
Located in the Oak Grove Marina Office Tower and next to the Yellowfin Restaurant, the South River Federation office is accessible via the service road. With the office overlooking the very waters it protects, it's easy to see how this hard working team of professionals remains dedicated to their mission of protecting the South River.
Testing water quality, bacteria sampling, advocating for restoration, implementing education and outreach policies, and even policing efforts with state environmental agences are just a few of the activities the South River Federation undertake to maintain the safety of our watershed. With a focus on not just protecting and restoring the river but moreover celebrating the diversity of the river and its living community, the federation relies on the volunteer efforts of 400 to 500 people and a small dedicated staff of three.
It's not all work, though. Kayak trips, stream clean-ups, rain garden construction and oyster gardening are just some of the activities in which members and non-members alike may participate. To learn more about the South River Federation, check out the website and become a volunteer.
