STEM: Waterfront Ecosystems & Human Impact

Tuesday, Nov 3, 2015

This workshop examines the evolution of NYC's waterfront ecosystems through the lens of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The Yard was established in 1801 on an area known as the Wallabout Bay. The Yard, and all of NYC's waterfront infrastructure, has had deleterious effects on the ecosystems around NY harbor - most famously on the oyster population. In this workshop, we will hear from a leading scholar on the impact, both positive & negative, human activity has had on the waterfront ecosystem, from the past to the present.

Joining us will be representatives from the Billion Oyster Project, who will share their story of working with NYC students to restore oysters to New York Harbor along with their classroom curriculum.

Sponsor: The Brooklyn Historical Society

Date: Tuesday, November 3, 9:00 am - 3:00 pmb Doors open at 8:30 am

Location: Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, Flushing Ave & Carlton Ave., Brooklyn, NY [MAP]

RSVP: Eventbrite, $35, breakfast & lunch will be served
