Marine Meadows Workshop

Marine Meadows Workshop in partnership with Long Island Community Foundation


by Cornell Cooperative Extension's Back to the Bays Initiative


Eelgrass serves as essential habitat to many of our local marine species. Eelgrass meadows have been on the decline in recent decades, but CCE is working to bring them back. Restoring our local eelgrass meadows will result in the creation of habitat for many fish and shellfish species, help protect our shorelines from erosion, and improve the overall health and productivity of our bays. This free workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about the importance of eelgrass while helping assemble planting units for use in local restoration. This event will take place on Sunday, November 18th 2018 between the hours of 10:00 AM-12:00 PM EST at Cedar Beach Marina located at Ocean Parkway, Babylon N.Y. 11702. Advance registration is requested, all children must be accompanied by an adult. Questions? Email Rachel Neville at ran68@cornell.edu or visit us at Eventbrite for more information.
