South Fork Natural History Museum is holding the 3rd Annual Save Our Seagrass Celebration benefiting Marine Meadows, an initiative of the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 8, 2014. The evening will feature live music, wine from Wölffer Estate Vineyard, beer from Montauk Brewing Company, a raw bar, and freshly harvested and sautéed Peconic Bay Scallops.

The Marine Meadows Program is the latest addition to Cornell Cooperative Extension's Eelgrass Program, which gives the community an opportunity to learn about the biology and importance of eelgrass during unique, hands-on restoration efforts. In recent decades, local populations of seagrass have been on the decline. The underwater plant species provides a vital nursery ground and habitat to several aquatic animals. Marine Meadows is fighting the decrease through their eelgrass restoration work and as a result of Save Our Seagrass, 10,000 shoots of eelgrass will be planted in East End bays.

Prior to the event, the community is encouraged to take part in the free Marine Meadows workshop at South Fork Natural History Museum on Saturday, November 1st, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Tickets to the 3rd Annual Save Our Seagrass Celebration are $75.

South Fork Natural History Museum is located at 377 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton. For more information, visit www.marinemeadows.org.
