11th Hour Racing supports Billion Oyster Project’s restoration work.

June 5, 2019

Billion Oyster Project is excited to announce that 11th Hour Racing is a new supporter of our work!

Ahead of World Ocean’s Day, 11th Hour Racing has confirmed its commitment to support Billion Oyster Project‘s reef restoration and public education programs at the Bush Terminal Park lagoons.

This grant will enable Billion Oyster Project to support oyster reef restoration and public education programs at the Bush Terminal Park lagoons, adding 135,000 oysters and 230 square feet of reef habitat while testing a new restoration technique. Billion Oyster Project will work with students of the New York Harbor School, a public high school on Governors Island, to spawn and grow oysters in the lab, build the reef, and monitor its growth. The grant will also fund Billion Oyster Project’s work to collect oyster shells from restaurants to use as setting substrate for the reef.
