Rice Rivers BG
VCU Rice Rivers Center
 

CES faculty and staff are major contributors to the growing research mission of VCU's 500-acre field station on the James River. The Rice Rivers Center, in turn, provides exciting opportunities for student based research and hands-on training in disciplines ranging from wetland biogeochemistry to endangered species recovery.

VCU Rice Rivers Center partners with Charlottesville restaurants in oyster restoration program

An oyster shell recycling program through Virginia Commonwealth University’s Rice Rivers Centerhas expanded its operations to Charlottesville. With help from volunteers, the Virginia Oyster Shell Recycling Program (VOSRP) will soon start collecting discarded shells from local restaurants. The shells, which would otherwise be sent to a landfill, will now return to the Chesapeake Bay to create a natural habitat for new oysters.
