Event Details

Join Paddle Diva and her crew  on a fun evening. Rental boards are available for $50 per board, please call the shop to reserve! 631-329-2999 The Great Peconic Race has partnered with Cornell Cooperative Extension's Marine Program to conduct extensive marine habitat and shellfish enhancement projects in several water bodies throughout the East End of Long Island. Proceeds from the annual Great Peconic Race have been directed to CCE Marine Program's "Back to the Bays Initiative" which engages the public in stewardship projects designed to bring back local shellfish populations and essential marine habitat. The Great Peconic Race is presenting a Back to the Bays Stewardship Paddle Series this summer, and we welcome paddlers of all levels to join us at these events. The second event in this series will involve deploying bags of oysters into the bay to create oyster beds. These oyster beds will help create habitat for many shellfish and finfish species, while helping to enhance local oyster populations.
