MAY: THE NORTH SHORE LAND ALLIANCE

Concerned about the changing environmental landscape of Long Island, a group friends decided to found the North Shore Land Alliance. Beginning in 2003, it has worked to preserve Long Island habitats including, wetlands, green spaces, farmland, historical sites, and groundwater. Through outreach, volunteerism, and education, it has succeeded in protecting over 1,000 acres of land, and continues to advocate for the adoption of better conservation laws. What started as a group of friends inspired to enact change, has become a successful nonprofit with over 200 active volunteers. To see their work in action, just visit the Shore Road Sanctuary in Cold Spring Harbor, where they’ve transformed a former ExxonMobile fueling site into eight acres of thriving grassland.

 

Each month our BYOB program is linked to a local charity.  To raise the funds to donate, we charge $.10 for each paper bag we give out.
