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: The I Love Long Island Campaign
This is a challenge to all Long Islanders: What if we could reinvent the suburban lawn, right where we invented it in the first place? What if we decided not to put 5,000,000 lbs of pesticides on the ground here every year? What if we chose native plantings? What if we stopped putting high nitrogen (more than 10% on the bag) fertilizers on our lawns, and therefore into our groundwater, our drinking water, and into our bays, rivers and ponds, where it contributes to destructive algal blooms? What if Long Islanders stopped putting one third of our water per year on our lawns? Join us and take the pledge!
