Eat Oysters At Participating Restaurants On National Oyster Weekend Aug. 2-5, Support Oyster Recovery In Chesapeake Bay

The Oyster Recovery Partnership is holding National Oyster Weekend August 2 to 5.  For every oyster sold at participating restaurants, the Partnership will receive 10 cents toward helping to plant oysters in sanctuary reefs in the Chesapeake Bay.
The participating restaurants in Pennsylvania are all in the Pittsburgh area: Eleven Restaurant, Muddy Waters Oyster Bar and Spirits & Tales at the Oaklander Hotel.

"This campaign serves as a celebration of local seafood and the hardworking watermen and aquaculturists who supply it, while supporting important Chesapeake Bay oyster restoration projects,” said ORP Executive Director Stephan Abel. “We encourage everyone to do their part by visiting these generous restaurants who have committed to a healthier Chesapeake Bay.”
Oysters are a critical species to the Bay’s long-term recovery because they filter excess nutrients and serve as habitat for a multitude of marine life. Over the past two decades, the Oyster Recovery Partnership has planted approximately 7 billion oysters on 2,400 underwater acres throughout Maryland.
Give Back to the Bay on National Oyster Weekend is generously sponsored by the Maryland Department of Agriculture.
