Each year, the Setauket Harbor Task Force hosts its own Harbor Day as a means of educating the public about improving water quality, enhancing community access, discussing scientific studies, and how to protect and conserve this resilient ecosystem. The Nature Initiative group will have a table this year highlighting filter feeding bivalves contribution to water quality. We’ll be illustrating this with a visual experiment of a small tank housing mussels, clams and oysters and the other being empty aside from water and sediment. If you enjoy talking to the public about what we do, come on down!
You are welcome to come for part of the event or the entire time. If you can only do a half day, please follow up with an e-mail after signing up to specify what time you are arriving/staying until. We’ll be meeting at the Brookhaven Town Beach site located on Shore Road in Setauket.
What to bring/further instructions:
- Clothing: long pants, high socks (in case of ticks), hiking boots/sneakers
- Water bottle
- Bagged lunch/snack
