Living in NYC, it may seem like it’s all concrete and subway tracks, but deep within the waters of the surrounding rivers, marine life is flourishing. This is in large part because of the resurgence of the oyster population. Oysters, which help filter nitrogen pollution from water, used to be abundant in the NY harbor but overfishing and a deluge of sewage runoff almost led to the disappearance of these important molluscs.
The Billion Oyster Project is leading the change and have introduced 75 million oysters across NY Harbor and have recycled two million pounds of shell from NYC restaurants.
Join us tonight at Arc'teryx Broadway to hear from Ann Fraioli, Director of Education at the Billion Oyster Project on the changing nature of our local environment, the future and how YOU can get involved.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Billion Oyster Project. Beer from our friends at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
As a founding teacher of New York Harbor School, Ann brings her knowledge of field science and love of teaching to the Billion Oyster Project. When she's not in the classroom or at the water's edge educating others, you will find her enjoying the outdoors and spending time with her son, Theo. Ann is a pathfinder currently working to expand harbor literacy through the development of new Harbor Schools focused on the marine environment and careers.
