July 11th: Today, the first oyster beds were layed down in Moriches Bay; an achievment that has not been seen for more than a couple decades and was orchestrated by the Moriches Bay Project in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension. A special thanks to West Hampton Dunes resident Robert Strecker for assisting in scouting the locations.

July 1st: The Cornell Cooperative Eelgrass team was joined by Moriches Bay Project scientist Dwight Surgan on a joint effort to collect seed pods from the plants. Pods were gathered from a local eelgrass meadow then trasported to a resoration area on the east side of Swan Island. They will be suspended in bags to allow for wide dispersal. View pictures in the gallery to see what else was lurking in the grass!
