The Schooner SoundWaters

Nearly twenty years ago, a plan to restore an ailing Long Island Sound took shape, spurred by a unique partnership of those who shared a love of the Sound. 

Over the years the Long Island Sound Study Citizens Advisory Committee, a diverse group of businesses, organizations and municipalities, has taken action to improve the Sound's health.

Today the CAC, advised by the best Long Island Sound scientists and experts, has developed this practical and attainable Action Plan to heal and restore the Sound. It's time to bring together all who care about the Sound to make a real difference.

You are cordially invited to join us for a day of meeting, learning and developing ideas to advance the health and vibrancy of Long Island Sound. We will base our discussions on the newly released SoundVision Action Plan, and prioritize strategies for Long Island Sound to continue to move forward.

We hope you can join us.
