This day is going to be very special and I think it includes more than I know. Let’s help restore the estuary that is New York Harbour by joining the effort to reintroduce oysters, an indigenous species of Lenapehoking. We’ll clean oyster shells, work on boats, learn something about oyster sex, get an introduction to New York Harbor School’s Billion Oyster Project (whose goal is to reintroduce 1 billion oysters into the bay by 2030), and yes!, we’ll bring in some oysters for us to EAT, too. Here’s something wonderful BOP wrote about our work together: Dance, Feast, Tell, Heal

Gather with us for a celebratory potluck feast! Bring a dish and the recipe to share. Bring your dishes, forks, and spoons! We’ll also share WILD AK SALMON from Iliamna Fish Company cooked on a open fire, OYSTERS from Open Oyster shucked by a team, and WINE from Broadbent! Our fantastic host, North Brooklyn Boat Club is offering environmental education programming to explore the unique history and returning ecology of Newtown Creek as well as free guide-led canoe tours of the Creek. And at some point we’ll gather near to Ben Weaver and listen to him sing.
