Shell Bagging

VCU Employee Oyster Shell Bagging

Thank you for your interest in participating in one of VCU’s ecology and restoration projects. Use your community service leave or other appropriate leave and show your support by coming out to the VCU Rice Rivers Center (3701 John Tyler Memorial Highway, Charles City, VA 23030) to help bag recycled oyster shells.  We will bag shell that will be seeded with larval oysters before being used on our restoration projects in the Chesapeake. We have facilities where you can change from work clothes to clothing that can get a little dirty.  Parking is limited, please car pool, if possible.

The task is to move shell from the shell pile, manually via baskets, to a table that contains the shell bags.  We then sort and push the shell into the bags and move the bags to pallets.

Please wear appropriate apparel and sturdy, closed toed shoes are required. We will have drinking water on site but bring a snack if you choose. The site is on uneven terrain and exposed to the elements and insects. We will have work tools and gloves available but bring your own work gloves if you prefer.

Please bring completed "assumption of risk" form with you (see attachement).

Thank you for helping us and giving back to VCU.
