Annual Seed Sale

Save the Date!

Puget Sound Restoration Fund’s Annual Shellfish Seed Sale

Saturday June 17th,  2022 at the PSRF office

Greetings Shellfish Gardeners!  Spring will soon be upon us, which means daylight low tides are coming. It’s will soon be time to get your shellfish gardens ready for planting new seed: sorting and splitting oysters and taking inventory of lines and gear. We will email pre-order forms the first week of May. If you know of others who are interested in purchasing seed, have them email (wendy@restorationfund.org) for a form. See you in June!

Oyster New Year

It’s a joy every year to be swept up in the great celebration of Northwest oysters. As the cloudy, cool fall weather returns to Puget Sound, the icy north Pacific Ocean current entices shellfish into their prime, creating a crisp, firm texture and clean taste characteristics. Each year, Elliott’s Oyster House rings in Oyster New Year in November, to celebrate the annual return of the peak shellfish season. Oyster New Year is a not to be missed event, with 30+ varieties of local oysters shucked to order, a fresh seafood buffet, live music and more.

We are so pleased that Elliott’s will host grandest of Oyster New Years in 2022, providing an elevated, VIP experience for all. Join us November 5th, 2022 from 4-8pm for the 29th Annual Oyster New Year. Learn more, and snap up tickets before they sell out!

A portion of the proceeds benefit us here at Puget Sound Restoration Fund, for which are are so thankful.

Whiskies for Wildlife

Our 10th Annual Whiskies For Wildlife event, presented by Bainbridge Organic Distillers, was a rousing success. Thank you to all who attended! If you didn’t make it this year, please mark your calendars for July 2023, which is when tickets will go on sale for next year’s event – to take place September 23rd, 2023. Tickets sell out *quickly* so be ready to snap into action.

This premier event features Scottish single malt whiskies and world-class single malt, grain, blended and antique whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Taiwan, the United States of America and more.

Sumptuous foods are prepared especially for this event by the Manor House’s Executive Chef, Shaun Verestej, to complement the whisky offerings. There will, of course, also be a raw oyster bar with freshly harvested, local Port Madison Petites. It is an afternoon to remember, wandering through the hall and patio overlooking beautiful Rich Passage, sampling exquisite food and drink.

All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund, for which we are so grateful.
