The Moriches Bay Project continues our eelgrass restoration efforts this season. We are looking for serious volunteers to help with this eelgrass restoration project. You will be collecting eelgrass seeds from an eelgrass bed in Great South Bay for planting at a restoration site in Moriches Bay.

We are looking for volunteers for 2 types of work:

  • Volunteers who can snorkel in shallow areas of the Bay and can bring their own mask, snorkel, fins (not essential). A wetsuit is a must.
  • Volunteers to count and organize seeds into bags to save for deployment at a later date.

If you are interested please email us at morichesbayproject@gmail.com
