Live music from The Firewater Tent Revival, an outstanding silent auction and raffle, and delicious oysters and seafood made for a special evening Nov. 16 at the Garden Club of Jacksonville as guests celebrated the St. Johns River and supported the St. Johns Riverkeeper.

The annual Oyster Roast to benefit the St. Johns Riverkeeper has become known as one of the best parties of the year. More importantly, the critical fundraising event supports the Riverkeeper’s effective advocacy, outreach, and education programs.

The day before the event, the Riverkeeper received good news from the National Geographic Committee of Research and Exploration, which awarded the nonprofit a River Exploration (RiverX) program $29,410 grant for the spring education boat trips. With this grant, the Riverkeeper can provide over 1,500 fifth-grade students with an on-the-water experiential learning opportunity they won’t forget.
