Oyster Monitoring at Soundview Park 

Help monitor our oysters, set up fish traps to see who’s using the reef and be a part of what we do! To add your name to the Soundview oyster monitoring volunteer list, just fill out the form below or email New York Oyster Program Coordinator Allison Fitzgerald at [email protected]

Check back Spring 2023 for Soundview Monitoring dates!

Each monitoring session lasts approximately 3 hours.  Bring some water, sun protection, a facemask (we may get within close contact as we monitor), and get ready to get wet and muddy with some oysters!

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!
