Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays
Peconic Estuary Program's watershed boundary and other estuary program boundaries.
The Peconic Estuary Watershed – the area of land that drains into the Peconic Estuary and the waterbodies included in the Peconic Estuary.
There are 28 National Estuary Programs- Peconic Estuary Program is one of them!
The Long Island Sound Study (LISS) is another National Estuary Program working to protect another Long Island waterbody. The Long Island Sound Study watershed includes all waters flowing into the Long Island Sound. The LISS watershed boarders Peconic Estuary Program’s watershed on the North Fork of Long Island.
The Long Island Sound Study (LISS), the South Shore Estuary Reserve (SSER), and the Peconic Estuary Program protect Long Island estuaries and their surrounding watersheds.
