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 BOP hatchery, and if the weather is nice we often end the day with oysters from Fishers Island on the half shell overlooking the Harbor.
For interest in long-term volunteering check out our long-term volunteer program! Interested in having your own Oyster Research Station? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about becoming a Community Scientist.
