Can oysters still thrive in New York Harbor? Can these simple bivalves help to provide natural defenses against rising waters or the next big storm?
Next Monday, Pippa will be speaking on a panel with project partners from the Billion Oyster Project and Wagner College. The panel, titled “The Return of the Oysters” will discuss the past, present and future of oysters in Staten Island, and whether oysters can thrive in NY Harbor– and help to provide natural defenses against rising waters or the next big storm.
Please join us at Wagner College to learn more about the exciting effort to bring oysters back to Lemon Creek, and hear about the process firsthand from both experts and student researchers- complete with Lemon Creek case study and touch tanks.
Please RSVP here.
