Only $1 plants 100 water-filtering, habitat generating oysters!

That’s some serious return on investment.

Oysters are beneficial to the Chesapeake Bay and the regional economy! As filter-feeders, oysters’ eating habits clean water of excess nutrients and sediments, improving clarity and quality. Oyster reefs provide valuable habitat, food, and protection for other marine species so they can grow and prosper. And oyster harvesting, distribution, and dining supports thousands of businesses Bay-wide. Help protect and preserve our beloved Chesapeake Bay by making a donation to plant oysters today. 

Over 95 percent of all donations go directly to support our restoration programs. Oyster Recovery Partnership is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Contributions to ORP are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
