Cornell Cooperative Extension received the Brine Family Trust Grant to support " SEAGRASS.LI " newsletter. The Cornell Cooperative Extension educational system enables people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. "SEAGRASS.LI" newsletter is intended to increase local awareness and stress the importance of conserving seagrasses.

Chris Pickerell, Habitat Restoration Specialist, says, “Our grant from the Brine Family Charitable Trust will allow us to continue to publish our newsletter 'SEAGRASS.LI.' We look forward to the opportunity to reach resource managers and the public with information concerning the status and importance of seagrasses in the region. Without this funding, it would not be possible to get the word out on this critical issue.”

The Brine Family Charitable Trust 2007 Summer Grant program for the East End of Long Island was created to fund projects on Long Island that serve to sustain The East End’s biodiversity, recover its endangered species, and maintain its natural ecosystem.

The Brine Family Charitable Trust, founded by Kevin R. Brine in 1989, is a recognized 501(c)(3) established as a private nonoperating foundation under section 509(a) of the Internal Revenue code. The trust does not accept donations.
