back to the bays logo Back to the Bays Initiative: CCE’s Marine Program has been giving Back to the Bays since 1985, and we are committed to offering communities, individuals, and businesses opportunities to help us expand our efforts! Our goal is to increase stakeholder engagement in our: Water Quality Protection Initiatives; Habitat Improvement Projects; Shellfish and Fin Fish Research and Restoration; and Youth and Community Education Experiences. – See more at:  http://ccesuffolk.org/marine/back-to-the-bays
spat logo SPAT Program: The SPAT program was created to encourage community members to become stewards of their environment and to restore shellfish to the bays. To augment the limited staff of the Cornell Marine Program, volunteers help produce shellfish to seed the bays. SPAT volunteers grow miniscule shellfish in containment, away from predators, until they reach an adult size when they release their spawn into local creeks and bays and promote wild settlement.- See more at:  http://ccesuffolk.org/marine/aquaculture/spat-program
By Shellabrating with us you will not only be enjoying the bounty of our bays, but helping to give back to our bays as well!
