CRCL : Oyster Shell Recycling Event

Friday, February 24 2023



Oyster Shell Recycling Event
CRCL Restoration Headquarters - Violet, LA
Friday, February 24, 2023
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) is excited to have you join us in Violet, LA! Launched in June 2014, CRCL’s Oyster Shell Recycling Program recycles shell from participating New Orleans-based restaurants and uses that shell to restore oyster reefs and shoreline habitat across Coastal Louisiana. As a volunteer, you will help prepare the shell for future restoration. Volunteers will place the recycled shell into bags that will later be transported to oyster reef restoration sites. Volunteers will also help clean up our shell pile and remove trash and plastics as we bag. By helping prep the shell, volunteers will play a role in creating a new oyster reef that will allow for the growth of new oysters, create new fish habitat, and act as a wave break which will knock down storm surge and allow new land to build up behind the reef.
