Turn the Brown Tide Blue in Shinnecock Bay: A Lecture at Quogue Wildlife Refuge
June 2, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Christine Santora, Program Coordinator, will be speaking and presenting a variety of photos showcasing Shinnecock Bay and the work of the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program. The program uses research, restoration, and community outreach to improve water quality and shellfish populations in the bay.
For years, scientists have understood that water quality is deteriorating, and a team of scientists at Stony Brook University came up with an “in the water” plan to restore the bay based on their research and expertise. Restoring eelgrass, hard clams, and oysters to the bay will improve water quality and lead to a more thriving, healthy marine ecosystem for future generations. The program also has public event and “citizen science” opportunities.
More information is available at http://shinnecockbay.org. This program is jointly sponsored by QWR and Eastern Long Island Audubon Society.
A free program for adults. Reservations requested.
