On May 18, 2017, guests mingled with 50 oyster farmers, enjoyed bites from over 20 of NYC’s top restaurants, learned about oyster culture from Harbor School students and sampled drinks from local partners. Proceeds from the event support Billion Oyster Project, an ecosystem restoration and education project aimed at restoring one billion live oysters to New York Harbor and engaging hundreds of thousands of school children through restoration based STEM education programs. Building Conservation Trust, Coastal Conservation Association’s National Habitat Program, is a proud partner of the Billion Oyster Project.
