Sign Petition for Drake’s Bay Oyster Company

If you believe in family farms, local food production, and — yes — environmental responsibility, I urge you to sign the petition to allow the Drake’s Bay Oyster company to renew its lease in the National Park. It’s the very best type of food production — no chemicals, fertilizers, watering, soil or water pollution. Plus the oysters actually filter and clean the water.

Here’s something I wrote last December:

Local Oyster Farm Controversy
The Drake’s Bay Oyster Company is being threatened by the same well-heeled “environmentalists” that recently forced the shutdown (in the next 5 years) of all trailers parked at Lawson’s landing. See my photo-report here: https://www.lloydkahn.com/2011/06/29/lawsons-landing-under-threat-by/
“…Some observers see a David versus Goliath struggle, with a federal agency and moneyed environmental groups picking on a family-run business.…” https://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2011/12/10/norcal_oyster_farm_dispute_spreads_to_capitol_hill/?page=2
For a very complete refutation of the National Parks Service’s bad science and underhanded tactics (in cooperation with the Environmental Action Committee) in an article by John Hulls and Todd Pickering, see: https://russianrivertimes.wordpress.com/

  1. "harbor seals or oysters..take your pick"
    totally not the case. the harbor seals and oyster farm have been coexisting peacefully for a long long time, and hopefully will be for a long time to come. the lunnys are great people with massive respect for the natural world that they participate in.
