"Brush Strokes for the Bays isn't your typical 'Paint Night' type event," explained Kimberly Barbour, Marine Program Outreach Manager at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County. "Here, participants get to learn about the marine species or habitat type we feature in our painting and have a chance to interact with educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension's Marine Program who provide interesting facts and information throughout the evening."
The goal of Back to the Bays is to grow the community's engagement in Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County's Water Quality Protection Initiatives, Habitat Improvement Projects, Shellfish and Fin Fish Research and Restoration and Youth and Community Education Experiences. "All proceeds support the 'Back to the Bays Initiative' which links the public with ways to get involved and support CCE's efforts to protect, restore, and enhance our marine environment," shared Barbour.
Barbour notes that attendees are in good hands with the evening's instructor. "Our artist, Carolyn Munaco is a really excellent instructor and accomplished local artist," she added. "She draws much of her inspiration for her work from our beaches and bays, making her an ideal partner in our Brush Strokes for the Bays efforts."
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County is extremely grateful for the support of the local community. "David Hersh
and his team at Cowfish have been so supportive of our efforts, recognizing the fact that we need to be stewards of our waters," she said. "We're pleased to be offering a series of our Brush Strokes for the Bays events with them over the next three months."
Admissions is $45 and includes all materials, door prizes, and drink specials.
CowFish Restaurant is located at 258 East Montauk Highway, Hampton Bays. For more information about the event, visit www.eventbrite.com. For more information about
