Attend an event

We and our partners throw great oyster events!

By simply attending, you’re making an impact in our efforts to restore Chesapeake Bay oysters. In some cases, proceeds from the event directly support ORP’s programs, and in others, oyster shells will be collected as part of our shell recycling program to be reused for planting more oysters in the Bay.
