BAYLES BOAT SHOP
The wood boat connects us to our roots and its craftsmanship should not be lost. The Bayles Boat Shop, a post and beam construction created by volunteers working together since 2006, is complete. It will keep Port Jefferson’s maritime boat building heritage alive through active small-boat building and restoration projects. Community Heritage Programming will start this fall with shop apprenticeship courses, and new Family Boat Building projects. Join us! READ MORE

In the ten beach cleanups completed during the first eight months of 2009, twenty-one tons of debris were removed with the help of 476 volunteers. Fifteen communities and organizations have ‘Adopted a Beach’ in 2009. This is the 20th year of beach cleanups initiated by Costal Steward Dave Johnson. To find out more go to: www.COASTALSTEWARD.org.

Long Island Seaport and Eco Center
Over the last ten years, LISEC has worked with the Coastal Steward raising and releasing oysters in local harbors. The success of this program is now visible as his disease free, black striped oysters are now found on piers, around Anchorage Point, and in many places around the harbors. These oysters are busy cleaning our harbor waters. One mature oyster filters 50 gallons of water per day. LISEC volunteers, community groups, schools and scouts gain great knowledge while working on this exciting project. To find out more go to: www.COASTALSTEWARD.org. READ MORE
