Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

PEP's Biennial Conference- Habitats and Wildlife Session

April 16, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Please Register for the PEP Conference held on Zoom

Our virtual conference will drive ACTION towards combatting the challenges our estuary faces.

The health of the Peconic Estuary faces challenges – and that means our community does too. Excess nutrient loading from land causes water quality to decline, climate change causes sea levels to rise, and all of these issues combined with other human activities harm our wildlife and habitats. As a result – the natural resources we depend on and the real estate and recreational opportunities we enjoy suffer. The PEP’s Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan outlines goals and actions that guide the work of our partnership to combat these issues. This free virtual conference is all about starting discussions that put these goals and actions into MOTION!

Register for the Habitats and Wildlife virtual session below. When you register, you can submit a relevant question that you would like our panelists to discuss. This is an interactive conference.

Join our partners as we discuss
“what are we going to do about it?”
