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!

Moriches Bay Project Family Program
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!
Moriches Bay Project had the pleasure of speaking to the first grade students at the Westhampton Beach Elementary school on January 13, 2017. MBP's Laura Fabrizio shared the importance of keeping our local bays clean and how everyone can play a part in reaching that goal. The students all participated in making oyster cages.
We had a great time with these wonderful young students. Thank you WHB Elementary!
