It’s simple: 3-D oyster reefs are imperative to the health and diversity of Chesapeake Bay. They provide habitat and food for crabs and fish, and clean water by filtering sediment, excess algae, and harmful pollutants. Oyster reefs support a diversity of life in the water, and a robust economy out of the water. That’s why CBF and volunteers fight to restore a self-sustaining network of reefs by recycling shells, planting oyster gardens, and deploying spat-on-shell and oyster reef balls into the bay. Help CBF create a live-bottom bay.
