Members of the Moriches Bay Project and its sponsor, BNB Bank, spent Friday morning in West Hampton Dunes teaching members of Girls Inc. of Long Island how to make oyster cages and set up an oyster farm in Moriches Bay.

Girls from across Long Island were participating in a week-long summer camp with Girls Inc. of Long Island, an affiliate of a national nonprofit that focuses on female empowerment through educational programs and workshops.

The organization partnered with the Moriches Bay Project to learn about the process of making oyster farms and how oysters improve the water quality of the bay by filtering excess nitrogen and algae. The group placed 10,000 oysters into the bay.
