The Save The Great South Bay General Campaign
Save The Great South Bay needs to scale to meet its mission. We seek to fund interns, public education, and awareness campaigns via social media. Thank you for supporting our efforts to inform the public as to what is wrong with the bay and how we can fix it!

The Shellfish Restoration Campaign
If we can bring back large scale shellfishing to The Great South Bay in the form of oystering, we can heal the bay, strengthen the local economy, and restore a way of life. Your contributions will help in our efforts to develop and implement the latest techniques in shellfishing aquaculture.

Support The Creek Defender Program
There are 31 creeks that flow into The Great South Bay. We've mapped all of them online so that we can begin to clean them up. Each creek will have its defender, and local volunteers from STGSB who will work with schools, civic organizations, and local business, village, town, and county officials to help to tend to and revitalize their creek. These clean ups require supplies and logistics, some funding to become operational.

Support Eco-Friendly, Bay-Friendly Lawn Care
In order to save our bays, rivers and ponds, and our local environment, we need to stop putting pesticides and high nitrogen chemical fertilizers on our lawns. What goes on our lawns ends up in our groundwater, and then either into our waters, polluting them, or into our drinking water, contaminating it. People need to know this.

Donate to Support A Moratorium on Lawn Fertilizers That Contribute to Algal Blooms in Suffolk County’s Waters
This campaign began last October as a local moratorium in Sayville on lawn fertilizers and pesticides. Soon, other towns on The South Shore joined in. Now, we have draft legislation to ban quick release water soluble lawn fertilizer in Suffolk County so that after a good rain the fertilizer doesn't end up washing into our ponds and streams, and then into The Great South Bay, as well as into The Peconic, Moriches, Shinnecock, and Mecox Bay, or into Georgica Pond, or Lake Ronkonkoma, or into the Carlls, Connetquot, Patchogue, Carmen, or Forge River. This proposed law is meant to protect all our waters. Please help us win the battle, for the sake of Suffolk's environmental future!
