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 join us for the 2nd Annual Save the Bay “Oyster fling “which will be held on Saturday, June 25, 7pm at 28 Stacy Drive in Westhampton Beach. This is the Moriches Bay Project’s biggest fundraising of the entire year, and your participation will help to make this year’s event a great success.
WHB 3rd grade class at the elementary school the MBP was invited back again this year to talk to the students about oyster farming and the importance it has on the bay.

-Why we picked MBP
Quote from the Lieutenant Governor:
"Division 1 Key Club has chosen MBP because we are passionate about maintaining the integrity of the natural world around us. We love that MBP is a local organization working to preserve what could be considered the heart of the community: the waters. The Moriches Bay Project also brings general awareness to the conditions of these waters and provides hands-on ways to make a difference".
Welcome on board and we are proud to have your support!
