Mobile Bay National Estuary Program and Thompson Engineering co-sponsored a new addition to the local oyster trail. The piece called “Estuary Gifts” was unveiled Thursday morning in front of the GulfQuest National Maritime Museum. Pictured above, artist James Foster, left, and John Baker, president of Thompson Engineering and Watermark Design Group pose next to the piece that shows an oyster with a pearl and various images associated with the watershed.
