One of this week’s events was a Billion Oyster Project Open House sponsored by partner organization The River Project. Judy O’Neil and I met at Pier 40 for the Open House in The River Project’s giant science education warehouse, office and research station projecting out into the Hudson River. The River Project is a marine science field station founded in 1986 that helps to educate and expand public understanding of the New York Harbor Estuary and drive home the message that the waterways, while impaired are still healthy enough to support a diversity of species despite four centuries of neglect and abuse.
Perhaps the best way to explain the work that the River project does is through a quick photographic tour of the warehouse out on Pier 40, with a little commentary about each grouping of photos:
