Save the Sound has been working with other organizations for a couple of years to prepare a long-range and short-range agenda for the continued cleanup and restoration of Long Island Sound.
They’re calling it the SoundVision Action Plan and they are unveiling it in seven locations around the Sound over the next month.
The first event is Monday, August 1, at Harbor Island Park, in Mamaroneck. There’s a press conference at 3, then a briefing for the public on board the schooner SoundWaters at 3:45 and then a two-hour sail on the Soundwaters.
The public is encouraged to attend the whole thing (although there’s not much room on the boat, so you need a reservation for that).
Save the Sound has asked me to help out with some publicity for the events and they sent me a copy of the SoundVision document. It’s impressive and it will be worthwhile to learn about it in detail, in person.
Here's the whole schedule:
Mamaroneck, NY - Monday, August 1
Port Jefferson, NY - Monday, August 8
Bridgeport, CT - Monday, August 15
Old Saybrook, CT - Wednesday, August 24
Mystic, CT - Saturday, August 27
Hempstead Harbor, NY - Tuesday, August 30
Greenwich, CT - Tuesday, September 6
You can sign up for the boat ride on the SoundWaters website, here, and there’s a SoundVision Facebook page as well.
