Become a Billion Oyster Project Volunteer at SUNY Maritime College and you will be part of a movement to re-establish oysters in the East River and help restore our local waters!

Tasks include: assessing site conditions, monitoring weather, water quality testing, measuring oysters, monitoring co-habitating organisms, and settlement ecosystems. Data is collected and shared with dozens of additional Oyster Restoration Stations around New York Harbor.
