NY/NJ Baykeeper fights for access to fishable, swimmable, clean waterways across the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary.
NY/NJ Baykeeper continues to be at the forefront of many environmental advocacy and legal campaigns.
The NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, also known as the Hudson-Raritan Estuary, is a system of waterways and habitats that form one of the most intricate natural harbors in the world. Since 1989, NY/NJ Baykeeper has worked to protect, preserve and restore the environment of the most urban estuary on Earth.
NY/NJ Baykeeper holds exciting events all year round! Please check our Events calendar regularly to stay in the loop. Hope to see you there!

We’re excited to announce that Baykeeper is passing the Oyster Gardening torch to the New York Harbor School’s Billion Oyster Project (BOP)! BOB currently runs an excellent program for middle schools so this transition is a natural one which will allow Baykeeper’s gardeners many more educational and research opportunities. Baykeeper is a proud partner of BOP.
Starting this season, all gardening activities will transition over to BOP.
What does this mean for you?

Not already a gardener? Contact BOP to get involved!
Baykeeper is a proud partner of BOP and Baykeeper and Harbor School will continue to work together on restoring oysters to NY Harbor!
