Our partners throw great oyster festivals! Simply by attending one of the below events, you are making an impact in our efforts to restore the local oyster population. In some cases, proceeds from the event will directly support ORP programming, and in others the shell collected will be circulated through our shell recycling program, and later reused as host shells for planting more oysters into the Bay. If you would like your event to be added to our list below, please contact us at: events@oysterrecovery.org.
