Half Shells for Habitat was proud to announce the first-ever “Shellapaloosa“! The weekend-long oyster celebration kicked off on August 5th, 2021 with a free Zoom webinar titled, “Restaurants to Restoration: The Story of a Recycled Oyster Shell”. Panelists included experts from the field.

Not only did participants have the opportunity to learn the who, what, where, and why we recycle oyster shells on Long Island, webinar attendees also received a 15% off “oyster voucher” redeemable at any one of the Shellapaloosa participating restaurants on an order of oysters!
