Plum Island going back under the microscope

Jun 19th, 2014 | By | Category: General

Environmental experts on both sides of Long Island Sound are embarking on new initiatives designed to educate the public about the importance of preserving Plum Island. In New York, the state Department of Environment Conservation is funding a year-long study of the island. Starting in January 2015, biologists from the DEC’s New York Natural Heritage Program will document at-risk animal and plant species in the island’s interior and along its shoreline.

At the same time, in Connecticut, an environmental nonprofit group called Save the Sound has created a full-time temporary position to spread the word about conserving Plum Island’s open space.
