Aquaculture Adoptions

Through CCE’s Back to the Bays Initiative,  you can now “adopt” some oysters, clams, bay scallops or eelgrass in a loved ones name through our Aquaculture Adoption Program. This makes the perfect gift for someone who has a special connection to being on the water! With a $25 contribution, you can give a unique and meaningful gift that will help support Cornell Cooperative Extension's shellfish and habitat population enhancement work.

Eastern Oyster

Your contribution will allow for more oyster beds to be created in our waters, which will enhance local oyster populations while providing habitat for commercially and recreationally important fish species. In recognition of your contribution, you will receive a box of notecards featuring drawings of local marine life created by artist Carolyn Munaco, in addition to a certificate recognizing your "adoption".
