oysters-at-River-Project-ORS-for-web2

An annual event hosted by the Billion Oyster Project.

Get treated to the ultimate oyster experience as we celebrate the movement to restore NY Harbor and our local marine environment. Mingle with 50 oyster farmers who will be shucking and serving their delicacies and enjoy bites from 20 of NYC’s top restaurants while learning about oyster culture and restoration. Speak to NY Harbor School students about their work on the Billion Oyster Project. Finally, wash it all down with brews, sodas, spirits and wines from local partners while watching the BOP All-Star Shucking Championship!

Proceeds from the event will support the four program areas of the Billion Oyster Project: Oyster Production, Reef Construction & Monitoring, Shell Collection, BOP Schools, and Public Engagement. Each program stands alone as an important advance in ecosystem restoration and public education. Together they make up our Harbor and City wide project that will have a dramatic impact on ecosystem health as well as public awareness, understanding and appreciation of NY Harbor.

 

MAY

The 8th Annual NYHS MarineScience Symposium   2019 date TBD 

 

The 2nd Annual Spring Tide Waterfront Community Event 2019 date TBD

 

The Spring Tide is a waterfront community building event hosted by the NYHS PTA & the Village Community Boathouse (VCB). VCB is where our students learn to row traditionally built NYC wooden Whitehall Gigs (row boats). The school and the boathouse come together to raise fun and funds on the Hudson River. Last year’s Spring Tide was such a great success, we’ve decided to make it an annual event. The venue is Pier 66 Maritime, where the Lightship “Frying Pan” and decommissioned Fire boat the “John Harvey” are both moored on the south-side. Tickets will go on sale in the Ides of March.
