Kittery Shop to Help Fund Oyster Reef Restoration
April 5, 2015
Coastal Conservation Association: The Fabulous Find Resale Boutique in Kittery, Maine, has announced that a portion of its profits in the month of April will be donated to the Coastal Conservation Association of NH (CCA NH) for its continued effort to help restore important oyster reefs in Great Bay. CCA NH’s Oyster Shell Recycling Project is now in its 5th year. Shell is collected weekly from Jumpin’ Jay’s Fish Café, The Surf, Martingale’s Wharf, Robert’s Maine Grill, Newick’s, and the Atlantic Grill and distributed in Great Bay to provide habitat for new oyster growth.
Support from the Fabulous Find will help finance the ongoing program and allow CCA NH to expand to other restaurants this summer.
Over 5000 bushels of oyster shells have been collected to date and are used to create new oyster reefs in Great Bay. Oysters are vital to clean water.
Since opening in 2010, the Fabulous Find has awarded over $550,000 to 80 Seacoast area non-profits.
