Shell Shaking (MD)

Friday, August 25, 2017
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
CBF's Oyster Restoration Center
4800 Atwell Road
Shady Side, MD 20764

Break a sweat and help Save the Bay—join CBF in cleaning the "homes" of the next generation of Chesapeake Bay oysters! Help restore the Chesapeake's native oyster population by cleaning oyster shells.

We'll be shaking off the dirt and debris on shells so baby oysters can successfully grow on them. This "shell shaking" event is a bit of a workout but a fun, hands-on experience. With lifting involved, it is not recommended for individuals with bad backs or other health concerns.

The event takes place outdoors and is subject to change or cancellation due to weather events. Please wear close-toed shoes and bring a water bottle. Again, it is not recommended for folks with health concerns. Children under 18 must have adult supervision.

A tour of our restoration center will follow the shell shaking.

RSVP to Pat Beall, Maryland Oyster Restoration Specialist, at or 443-482-2065.
