Marine Meadows Workshop

  • Saturday, October 29, 2022, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Help us restore Long Island’s eelgrass populations! Participants will learn about the biology and importance of eelgrass as we discuss the causes of its population decrease and the ways that CCE is working to restore it. Participants will then help us with hands-on restoration work by weaving eelgrass into burlap “tortillas” that will be used to create new marine meadows.

All ages are welcome, but the activity is recommended for ages 12 and above.

The event will be held outside, rain or shine (with pop-up tents if needed).

This workshop is made possible by Southampton Town CPF Funding .
