Scientific Study to use Stewart’s Creek in Hyannis

marshHYANNIS – Stewart’s Creek in Hyannis will soon be the site of a scientific study, according to Barnstable Town Manager Thomas Lynch.

The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies will begin work funded by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust.

Oysters will be planted in Stewart’s Creek, and scientists will study the oysters in an effort to discover if they pick up certain contaminants.

The Cape Cod Cooperative Extension Service is also assisting by providing racks that will be used to place oyster seed in the field.
