The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation
was established in 2007 by Andrew Sabin whose lifelong interests have been focused on the environment and community well being; particularly around the East End of Long Island.   Mr. Sabin recognizes the importance of diverse habitat to both upland and underwater ecosystems and continually works to preserve and restore such ecosystems for future generations to enjoy. 

Joe and Liza Tremblay, owners of Bay Burger Restaurant, have been extremely supportive of the Marine Meadows Program since it’s inception.  Several Marine Meadows Workshops have been hosted at their Sag Harbor restaurant and they have further pledged their support of our eelgrass restoration efforts by contributing to the SOS Campaign.  Be sure to visit them at 1742 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike Sag Harbor, NY 11963 and enjoy their wonderful handcrafted burgers.  More information at

Saving Our Seashore
was founded by Karen Marvin after seeing and living through the devastating effects of hurricane Sandy. Our shorelines are under constant threat from erosion and the damaging effects of natural disasters, so this organization has committed itself to raising funds to support projects that will help protect our shorelines for generations to come.  Saving Our Seashore has designed beautiful jewelry and apparel items, and proceeds generated will be directed towards the Marine Meadows Program.  We encourage you to check out for more information or to show your support by purchasing the Saving Our Seashore necklace.
