Join the Gowanus Canal Conservancy at Threes Brewings Tiny Montgomery for the second of our 4-part serieson urban ecology where we dive into all things oyster. From its history as an abundant source of food and commerce to its near population collapse, oysters have become the focal point for marine restoration, coastal shoreline restoration, and water quality management. Our panelists will unpack the role they can, should and do play within the larger landscape of urban ecology with short and engaging presentations, a dynamic panel discussion and interactive Q&A with our attendees.
The Urban Ecology Lecture Series is free with a suggested $5 donation at the door. Enjoy $1 off drafts and wine, $5 house liquor drink specials, and Mediterranean menu debut from acclaimed Chefs Max and Eli Sussman, courtesy of our venue sponsor, Threes Brewing.
