Help Us Save The Great South Bay

 

For future generations

It’s our bay, our heritage — and our legacy. We grew up clamming it, sailing it, swimming in it. Now our bay is sick, and we must heal it, for today and for the future!

Save The Great South Bay is a local 501(c)3 non-profit that actively works to restore the bay, and with that, strengthen our South Shore communities.

About Our Organization

defending our creeks

Our Creek Defenders help the 50 creeks flowing into the Great South Bay move freely by removing debris and monitoring invasive species.

restoring oyster habitat 

Oysters eat murky water for lunch. The Great South Bay Oyster Project restores oysters and their natural filtration capabilities to the Bay. 

Planting bay friendly

We are restoring habitat for local wildlife by putting back what was here long before we were through the Bay Friendly Yards program.

education and advocacy

We connect with the many stakeholders to spread the message that the Bay is but a symptom, it is the mainland which is sick. 

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

It’s our bay, our heritage — and our legacy. We grew up clamming it, sailing it, swimming in it. Now our bay is sick, and we must heal it, for today and for the future!

Save The Great South Bay is a local 501(c)3 non-profit that advocates for and implements real solutions that will help restore the bay, and with that, strengthen our South Shore communities.
