To do their part to help improve local waterways, high school Science Research students seeded 42,000 clams into Shinnecock Bay on Oct. 14.

The initiative, which connects learning to the local environment, was conducted in collaboration with the Shinnecock Bay Restoration Program. The program was established in 2012 to restore the water quality in the bay through a variety of partnerships.

This is the second time that Hampton Bays High School Science Research teacher Dr. Stephanie Forsberg has involved her students in the restoration program. Last year, approximately 40,000 clams were seeded into the bay by her class.
