Event description
Adopt some oysters outside the classroom! Learn how to track oyster growth and identify organisms living among the oysters. Be "hands-on"!

About this Event

At our entry-level training, you will learn how to track oyster growth and identify organisms living among the oysters. The program is designed for schools, organizations, and individual community scientists who want to be “hands-on” in monitoring and restoring the New York Harbor Estuary.

During this training on Governors Island, you will learn to handle an Oyster Research Station (ORS) and work with a Community Reef. At the end of the training, you will be ready to either receive your own ORS, join an ORS at an already established site, or join the efforts at a Community Reef.

BOP provides a starter kit for the Oyster Measurement protocol, including basic equipment, supplies, live oysters, and a permitted waterfront site where you can safely conduct field science expeditions with your students or fellow team members.

The cost breakdown:

  • New organizations, schools or citizen scientists: $300. This price covers training, associated supplies and oysters up to 4 educators/citizen scientists from your organization! Please purchase the appropriate ticket.
  • If you are already a member of the BOP community but are sending a new staff member the to get trained, the fee for each new member from participating organizations is $50. Email educate@nyharbor.org to receive the discount code for your ticket.

Paying by check instead? Please email educate@nyharbor.org to confirm your reservation and receive the discount code.

Is the event full? You can be added to the waitlist!
