Oyster Gardening

This program, in collaboration with NY/NJ Baykeeper and the New York Harbor School, seeks to increase stewardship among residents of the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary by working with volunteers from schools and community organizations in New York City to help prepare an oyster reef off the Tribeca waterfront. The project builds on the results of NY/NJ Baykeeper oyster reef restoration in New Jersey and research conducted by The River Project at its Pier 26 field station in New York (see Oyster Restoration). Please contact us if you are interested in participating. To get involved, please contact Nina Zain, Head of Interns, at The River Project at 212-233-3030 or
