Welcome to ReClam the Bay

ReClam the Bay is a local, non-profit environmental organization that promotes environmental involvement and education in a constructive and helpful way. Together we grow and maintain millions of baby clams and oysters.

reclam collageAs we grow seed clams and oysters to stock our local bay we teach everyone how important and fragile the shellfish population and  our environment really is. We are open to everyone and all are welcome to come lend a hand. Look at our online calendar for event dates that are convenient for you. See you there :)

Mission Statement

Our mission is to involve and educate the public about the estuary’s water quality and the importance of shellfish. We believe that by involving the public in the care, feeding, and life cycles of the shellfish they will better understand what an integral role shellfish have in our lives.

Prior Year’s Annual Report

ReClam the Bay uses the hard clam and oyster as living representatives of the bay ecosystem that includes the coastal bay and its watersheds. We educate people about the requirements of shellfish that serve as watchdogs for good water quality. Finally we explain the impact of  people on these natural resources and that people must be stewards of the natural resources that we share.

In Memoriam

Bob Royal

It is with deep regret that we share the news that RCTB member Bob Royle of Brick has died. Over the last year or so, some of our membership provided Bob with rides to dialysis. Bob was a wonderful guy. He was alway up beat even with all his health problems. We, like his family, will miss him greatly.

Quoting on behalf of his family:

“Bob loved the water, being out on his boats and fishing. He also loved to ski. He was a great cook and everyone loved his breakfasts and stories at the bed and breakfast. He was always willing to help someone out and will be greatly missed.”

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Popcorn Park Zoo, Reclam the Bay or the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.ryanfuneralhome.com. – See more info here.
