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!
