Join us for an oyster shell bagging at the Coastal Center and help bag oyster shells that will eventually be deployed into the Indian River Lagoon for restoration! 

Take part in habitat restoration with us as we build Oyster Prism modules that will be deployed to create oyster reefs at our restoration sites.
