Hops for Habitat Art + Awareness Event Hosted by The Greenport Harbor Brewing Company

November 6, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Marine habitat, namely eelgrass, is of high importance to our local aquatic ecosystem. In recent decades, eelgrass beds have been threatened by numerous water quality issues and physical disruptions. To combat eelgrass habitat loss, a great deal of effort is being put towards the study and restoration of this species by Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Marine Program. Come join us at The Greenport Harbor Brewing Company for our annual Hops for Habitat Art + Awareness Event that will feature a gallery and art sale of works by local artists and an opportunity to learn more about our local marine environment from CCE’s scientists and educators. Funds generated at the opening celebrations and through art sales will directly support the restoration of eelgrass meadows in our local bays. Refreshments generously provided by Fork & Anchor.
