Volunteers are Helping

Volunteer with us!

Oyster restoration is impossible without community support and the help of dedicated volunteers!

BOP holds regularly scheduled volunteer days on Governors Island throughout the Spring and Summer. Volunteers work alongside Harbor School students and teachers to build oyster cages, prepare recycled shell for seeding, sort and count baby oysters, and much more. Every volunteer day also includes learning opportunities, Q&A with project staff, tours of the BOP facilities, and if the weather nice we often end the day with oysters from Fishers Island farm on the half shell overlooking the Harbor.
