Come check out what our team is up to! Help monitor our oysters, set up fish traps to see who’s using the reef and be a part of what we do!

Each monitoring trip lasts approximately 3 hours.  We will meet at the park entrance located at the corner of O’Brien Ave and Leland Ave, Soundview, Bronx NY 10473 (For GPS purposes, you can use the address of 311 Leland Ave, Bronx, NY 10473).  For those of you taking public transportation, the Bx 27 or Bx 39 buses will put you within walking distance (the subway is a further walk).  Bring with you water, sunscreen, a hat, and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. We will provide everything else!
