South Fork Marine Education

Long Island’s South Fork is a worldwide attraction, in part because of the beauty of it's different marine habitats. The Atlantic Ocean and the Peconic, Shinnecock and lesser Bays are part of the unique culture here, with many residents who's livelihoods often depend on our marine resources and landscapes, to thousands of summertime visitors who want to enjoy the beauty and bounty that the South Fork has to offer. Cornell Cooperative Extension has been educating the citizens of Suffolk County for over 30 years about our marine resources, and offers educational programming both in-school or at the Town of Southampton's Tiana Bayside Facility in Hampton Bays. School programs are designed to interest students in grades K-12 in the many diverse and exciting marine topics, and to teach them how they can help protect and enhance our marine environment. Please view our school program brochure on the right side of this page for specific programs and pricing. Tiana Bayside programming offers topics in both Marine Science and Art, or both!
