Found in estuaries around the world, oysters play a valuable role in ecosystems and economies. These unassuming mollusks have sustained Native Americans, cleaned polluted harbors, provided critical habitat, and created waterside cultures. The exhibition Oysters, the Pearls of Long Island Sound explores the science and natural history of oysters, particularly the Long Island Sound’s native Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica.
