The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is an initiative of New York Harbor Foundation and aims to restore oysters to New York Harbor, through restoration based STEM educational programs and in-water ecosystem restoration. Towards this end, BOP collects oysters shells from 45 restaurants, trains teachers at 50 schools and works directly with students at New York Harbor School to design build and monitor reefs all in the murky, polluted, fast-moving waters of one of the busiest ports in the nation.

Our BOP Exhibit this summer will showcase the importance of oysters in estuaries like our NY Harbor and how BOP and NY Harbor School has worked to restore about 14 million oysters to date in our harbor. Visitors will have the opportunity to experience the wonders of their local waterways by getting to know oysters up close and personal!
