“While oysters are undeniably delicious, there’s even a better reason to love them — did you know they help protect coastlines against storm surge, and filter nitrogen pollution from our waterways? Get ready to travel to Governors Island for a crash course lesson on these famous shellfish, all while helping one organization accomplish their goal of repopulating New York Harbor with a billion of them.

Join New York Adventure Club for a special hands-on oyster experience with Billion Oyster Project, a nonprofit headquartered on Governors Island that’s dedicated to restoring oyster reefs in New York Harbor through public education initiatives.”
