Oyster Bagging

Roll your sleeves up and get ready to bag some oyster shells. Shell bagging prepares us for our reef building operations. You’ll get both a great work out and contribute to the next generation of oyster reefs!

Oyster Reef Building

SPRING RECAP 2017
REEF BUILDING

The Restore Our Shores team has continued making significant progress with its reef building efforts. Throughout the spring, the team constructed reefs in Port St. John and multiple areas in Indiatlantic,  totaling over 850 linear feet. Future builds are awaiting permits and will likely to continue in mid to late August.
