A big thank you to Jennifer Skilbred from the Group for the East End. At our last meeting she told us all about an exciting new program. The program allows us to learn more about our local estuary and all its amazing bays, while improving our property and reducing pollution from entering local waters.
The Peconic Estuary Program (PEP) is providing a unique opportunity for our neighborhood (Reeve’s Bay watersheds). The PEP will provide financial rewards for homeowners that add native vegetation areas and/or rain barrels to their properties. Funds are limited and will be granted on a first come first served basis.
