For 32 years, The River Project (TRP) has worked to protect and restore New York Harbor. Some of their achievements towards this end over 2018 include the following:
Over the summer, “Big”, the largest oyster seen in the Hudson River Estuary in the last 100 years was found under Pier 40. TRP’s wetlab partnered with seven researchers on projects involving the estuary. Their Citizen’s Water Quality Testing program tested 1,100 New York City water samples. In 2018, TRP educated over 3,500 students – their biggest class yet.
TRP was awarded grants by the NYS DEC Husdon River Estuary Program and Con Edison, and is always accepting donations.
