What a way to kick off our 20th anniversary! We could not have asked for a more beautiful evening at Gascoigne Bluff Park on Saturday, January 18, 2020. With stats like the ones above, our 20th annual Oyster Roast is one this island will not soon forget. Under the glistening lights (provided once again by Malone Electric) woven among the branches of Gascoigne's ancient live oaks, guests enjoyed more steamed oysters than ever before and made rounds to many booths and a buffet piled high with delicacies from local restaurants. Guests filled their reusable Land Trust cups with refreshments galore and danced to the sounds of a saxophone from community-loved musician: Michael Hulett.

An exciting aspect of this year's Roast was the Land Trust's commitment to making the event greener than ever. And with the help of our dedicated GREEN TEAM Volunteers, the waste diversion rate for the event was nearly 70%! An event is considered "zero waste" when it reaches a 90% diverson rate. With no Styrofoam, less plastic cutlery, the use of beer kegs instead of bottles, the addition of reusable cups, and the recycling of discarded oyster shells for local living shoreline projects, we were able to keep more than two tons of waste from reaching the landfill.

The 20th annual Oyster Roast would not have been possible without our sponsors and volunteers.

Charlie and TeamPhoto by Chris Moncus Photography

Thank you also to Charlie Williams, owner of Crabdaddy's Seafood Grill. Over the past 20 years, Charlie brings his team of oyster steamers and serves up bushel after bushel to a hungry crowd. Charlie is one of the Land Trust's most valued and dedicated volunteers and, once again, saved the night by sensing the need and retreiving several extra bushels. Thank you Charlie!
