Welcome to the Moriches Bay Projectâ„¢!

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 Projectâ„¢ to improve the quality of our bay and make a difference you can see!
