The Peconic Estuary System is an integral part of the Long Island economy and ecology. In order to sustain this valuable resource, we must achieve a balance between the needs of the estuary’s resources and the sometimes conflicting demands of the region’s populace. Key to establishing this balance is an educated citizenry that is willing to support, promote, and actively participate in measures to protect the estuary system at home, at work, and while recreating, and collectively act as wise stewards of a shared public resource. Achieving this requires an intensive education, outreach, and participation effort that is aimed at key audiences/stakeholders as well as the public in general.
