Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program Eelgrass Replanting Event
Start Date: 4/27/2013Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 4/27/2013End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Stony Brook University scientists involved in the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program (ShiRP) are inviting volunteers to help with an eelgrass replanting event to stimulate and replenish eelgrass beds in Shinnecock Bay. The event is designed to assist the scientists with eelgrass disc assembly; increase citizen science participation in the program; and to update the community with ShiRP’s progress.

Restoration activity space is limited and an email RSVP is required. RSVP to Christine Santora, Program Coordinator at

Volunteers are encouraged to bring a pair of scissors, a bag lunch, a hat and sunscreen, and to wear old clothing. Throughout the day there will be educational opportunities for non-volunteers to learn about the natural environment of Shinnecock Bay and the broader efforts of the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program.

The Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program, founded by scientists from the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University and its Institute for Ocean Conservation Science, is using science, outreach and partnerships to restore the water quality and fisheries of the Shinnecock Bay. The aim of ShiRP is to reduce the occurrence of harmful algal blooms and increase shellfish populations and eelgrass beds to return Shinnecock Bay to a thriving estuarine environment.
