Saving oyster and clam shells to be used for reef restoration is a great way for citizens of the Hampton Roads - Tidewater area to help rebuild the oyster population in the Lynnhaven River.
Two locations are available to drop off shells:
- The east parking lot of the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center on General Booth Boulevard
- In front of the Lynnhaven River NOW office at 1608 Pleasure House Road, Suite 108.
Lynnhaven River NOW is also available to collect shells from events and fundraisers. Please call the organization in advance and to obtain baskets for the shells and schedule a pick up after events.
