Lunch ‘n’ Learn with Conservation Biologist Louise Harrison
Wednesday, January 31 from 12 to 1 p.m.
On Wednesday, January 31, Save the Sound members are invited to join our upcoming webinar on Plum Island, featuring Louise Harrison, Save the Sound’s Long Island natural areas coordinator and conservation biologist. Plum Island, a hidden ecological, historical, and cultural treasure, boasts the largest seal haul-out in New York and habitat for 229 bird species. The Preserve Plum Island Coalition, coordinated by Save the Sound, successfully campaigned to save the Island from the federal auction block; the future of the island, however, remains unclear. Louise will guide us through the island’s natural, historical, and cultural significance and why over 120 national, regional, and local organizations are fighting to ensure it becomes a national monument or receives another equally protective designation. Don’t miss this exclusive webinar to engage with our on-ground expert, ask questions, and learn how you can help support the preservation of Plum Island for future generations.
