About the Billion Oyster Project
Restoration without education is temporary. Billion Oyster Project aims to change this by restoring 1 billion oysters in our waters - with New Yorkers, for New Yorkers. Oyster reefs are vital to NYC's ecosystem - filtering water, creating habitat, improving biodiversity, and shielding city shorelines from erratic weather and storms. BOP bridges restoration and education by collaborating with public schools and students to foster lasting environmental stewardship in a concrete jungle. Through oyster-focused STEM programs, BOP partners with New York Harbor School students to work on real restoration projects - right on Governors Island and throughout the harbor. With research stations around NYC, BOP has worked with 6,000 students, seeded 45 million oysters across 12 acres and 15 reef sites, and engaged over 10,000 volunteers and teachers in marine restoration. Before you enjoy your oyster experience, consider donating to Billion Oyster Project. Any contribution puts us one step closer to a future where New York returns to a rich, diverse, abundant estuary for wildlife and for all.

Though the total class time is 1.5 hours, guests are welcome to stay for drinks or dinner afterwards.
