Hockey Stick Oyster Gardening

We’re working to repurpose donated hockey sticks by transforming them into oyster habitat units throughout the Hudson Raritan Estuary. The hockey stick unites allow for the oyster population to grow and, ultimately, improve water quality.

Units are built by the Central Regional High School hockey team through a unique partnership with Baykeeper, providing hands-on learning and youth STEM education opportunities.

Sites of artificial oyster reefs include: Keyport Yacht Club-Keyport HarborLiberty State Park -Hudson RiverKearny Point- Newark Bay/Hackensack RiverHoboken Sailing School’s Pier 12 -Hudson RiverBayonne & Elizabeth-Newark Bay and Meadowlands Conservation Area.
