The New York Sea Grant mission statement is to develop and bring science to the shore to protect and enhance the economies, ecosystems, and resources of New York State’s coats. The Sea Grant Extension will be working with sixty students from Westhampton Beach Middle School to plant native coastal wildflowers and to create habitat for native bees.
