Billion Oyster Project Oyster Restoration Station Expedition

I will demonstrate an expedition to a Billion Oyster Project (BOP) Oyster Restoration Station (ORS) and explain how repopulating oysters in NYC waters will (1) increase protection to climate change (2) clarify water (3) increase fish populations (4) make for more swimmable water (5) create jobs (6) increase STEM in education (7) provide environmental justice (8) restore a NYC landmark.

You do not need to register for this event. Just show up.

I may have to bug out for a half hour swim at 2pm as high tide in the area is at 12:40pm and that time is slack current.
