We are a local organization dedicated to working within our community to monitor and restore Moriches Bay. The Bay was once a thriving natural habitat for shellfish, eelgrass, and many other important aquatic species. However, over the last few decades the decline in water quality has led to a majority of their disappearance.
Please help the Moriches Bay Project™ to improve the quality of our bay and make a difference you can see!
Please check out this video of MBP in action! Last summer, we hosted a fantastic eelgrass event lead by our very own Stephen Heck, Director of the eelgrass project. We were thrilled to spend the day with a great group of supporters and volunteers. Thank you to all who participated!
On January 20, 2017, Moriches Bay Project visited the Remsenburg-Speonk Elementary School. We had a great time speaking with these wonderful young students and teaching them to build oyster cages. Thank you for having us!

Moriches Bay Project believes that teaching our youth to be stewards of the Bay is crucial for long term success in improving the health of our local waters. Through community and school based events, children learn the importance of keeping our local bays clean and what they can do to help.
Through education and hands-on activities, Moriches Bay Project strives to inform and excite students, emphasizing that they are never too young to make help a difference!
MBP recently spoke to first grade students at the Westhampton Beach Elementary School. The students participated in making oyster cages!

We had a great time with these wonderful young students. Thank you WHB Elementary!
