The Galveston Bay Foundation’s Oyster Shell Recycling Program promotes a sustainable oyster population that improves the bay’s water quality, provides habitat and food for other marine species, and supports an important recreational and commercial fishery. The Oyster Shell Recycling Program not only preserves a valuable resource, it also provides partnership opportunities as well as hands-on volunteer opportunities for schools, scouts, and other groups seeking community service and research. By returning shucked oyster shells to Galveston Bay, GBF is working to ensure a healthy oyster population for all to enjoy!
