In an effort to host more impactful volunteer activities, the PSP NY Gives Back Committee is encouraging everyone to make a gift towards our collective fundraising goal of $2,500. All funds will go directly to facilitating our volunteer activity with the Billion Oyster Project – no amount is too small!
Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is on a mission to restore oyster reefs to NY Harbor through public education initiatives. Today, oysters are functionally extinct in the Harbor as a result of over-harvesting, dredging and pollution. Restoring oysters and reefs will restore the local marine ecosystem’s natural mechanisms for maintaining itself, resulting in cleaner water and greater biodiversity.
