Oyster Shell Recycling Program


Galveston Bay Foundation’s Oyster Shell Recycling Program promotes a sustainable Eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) population by returning shucked oyster shells from local restaurants back to Galveston Bay. The Oyster Shell Recycling Program preserves a valuable resource while providing partnership opportunities and hands-on volunteer opportunities for schools, Scouts, and other groups seeking community service and research. By returning shucked oyster shells to Galveston Bay, GBF is working to ensure a healthy oyster population for all to enjoy!
