Don’t hold your breath, our water quality program continues to grow! We are excited to announce our new water testing program based out of the Southampton campus of Stonybrook University is fully up and running, allowing our Blue Water Task Force to sample beaches, ponds, and bays in Sag Harbor, Southampton, North Sea & Hampton Bays.
Eastern Long Island Chapter thoroughly enjoyed hosting chapters from Maine to Georgia for the 2016 East Coast Chapter conference. Every chapter has their own unique set of campaigns and programs, so we came together to share tactics to host effective campaigns, and to motivate citizen scientists to get involved to protect our ocean and beaches.
The Eastern Long Island Chapter is proud of its role in the making of the new short film Into the Sea by local filmmaker and pro-surfer Mikey DeTemple. The film highlights how important clean water and clean beaches are to all of us living on and visiting the east end.
Once again the National office is holding the Two Coasts, One Ocean Event in Montauk and Malibu this August with substantial portion of the proceeds going to the local Chapter. In return, the chapter is being asked to turn out volunteers to the event. A few items are also needed from vendors. They’ve been secured for money but any leads on donating or discounting them will be followed. Please read more for details.
