Creek Defender Program
Working together with municipalities, local organizations, schools, elected officials and others, we patrol, identify areas in need, and clean up along the 50 creeks and rivers leading into the Great South Bay, ensuring healthier waters enter the Bay.
Oyster Habitat Restoration
Our GSB Oyster Project will restore the oyster habitat to the Great South Bay promoting local aquaculture and a natural filtration system that will help keep the Bay clean. Our goal is to plant 100 million oysters over the next five years.
Bay Friendly Habitat Restoration
We promote native habitat restoration through planting of native species, stormwater management and the utilization of eco-friendly maintenance techniques with the end goal of improving the quality of water that enters the Bay.
