The Oyster Recovery Partnership is dedicated to restoring oysters to the Chesapeake Bay – and raising awareness about the importance of the keystone species.

Events & Outreach

Each year, ORP actively participates in dozens of community events and festivals. Whether its collecting and recycling oyster shell for future restoration projects, staffing an educational information table, or simply entertaining event attendees with our mascot Shelly , we never tire of talking about oysters! Join us for an upcoming event to learn something new.

Team Building

Engage your employees around a cause with educational team building opportunities like shell recycling, oyster cage building or shell bagging, or create your own volunteer opportunities to get them directly involved in making a difference. Learn more.
