NC Oyster Week
Join us October 11 – 15, 2021 as we virtually “shellebrate” the history, culture, economy, and ecology of oysters in North Carolina!
Oysters play an important role in coastal communities. In the environment, oysters filter water, improving water quality, and create habitat for other animals. Their unique flavor makes them a desirable dish, supporting the livelihoods of watermen and local economies across the state. The N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, NC Oyster Trail, North Carolina Sea Grant, and the NC Coastal Federation have partnered to bring you five days of oyster facts, resources, and programming.
We will be sharing on social media using the hashtags #NCOysterWeek #NCOysters #GiveAShuck.
