Coastal restoration to create “Napa Valley of Oysters” — March 12, 2019 — Raleigh, NC

Join the North Carolina Coastal Federation and partners on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh for an engaging summit and evening reception on the future of oysters in North Carolina.

This event is open to anyone interested in using coastal restoration to make North Carolina the “Napa Valley of Oysters”, including: elected officials, fishers, educators, oyster eaters, scientists, resource managers, shellfish growers and anyone involved in establishing public policy, research, monitoring, managing, growing and harvesting oysters in North Carolina.

Those attending will be excited by the progress that has been made in the past few years and leave energized to do their part in advancing the future of oysters in North Carolina.

Participants will clearly understand the need and strategy of a multipronged approach to rebuild North Carolina oyster habitat, stocks and fisheries, smartly grow shellfish farming and improve the state’s coastal water quality and economy.

An evening legislative reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Transfer Co. Food Hall will follow the summit and we hope you can join us for one (or both) of the events!

For more information about the summit, contact Erin Fleckenstein at or (252) 473-1607.
