Thursday, March 30 at 7:00pm. Village Center. No registration required. Our community sits beautifully on the shore of Long Island Sound. As beautiful as it is, just how healthy is the water? Join Leanne Bloom with the Save the Sound organization and learn about efforts to clean the water and the shoreline of Long Island Sound. In fact, the water along the Manor Park shore has a significantly degraded quality with very poor nutrient and clarity levels due to pollution and little water exchange with the Atlantic Ocean. This program will provide information about what is being done to clean up The Sound and how you can help. To receive an email reminder for this program, CLICK HERE.
