Saturday March 4, 2017 – Meet at 8 am 
Morton Wildlife Refuge
Eileen Schwinn
​We will meet at the Morton Wildlife Refuge parking lot at 8 am, and walk approximately 2 miles on this hike. Not only do the birds eat right out of your hand the minute you get out of your car, but there are frequently pockets of over-wintering birds along the way. Dress warmly and appropriately. Bird seed will be provided. Contact Eileen Schwinn, beachmed@optonline.net for more information, and at 516-662-7751 the day of the trip.

Campaign to Save Plum Island
Louise Harrison

Come see a short documentary film “Conservation on a Precious Island,” featuring Academy Award-nominee Sam Waterston, followed by a “virtual tour” of Plum Island, and learn the latest news on the Preserve Plum Island Coalition campaign. Learn how you can join the fight to protect Plum Island from commercial development.
Louise Harrison is Save the Sound’s New York outreach coordinator for the Plum Island campaign. She is a conservation biologist who has served on Long Island in federal, New York State, and Suffolk County agencies as well as in leadership and consulting positions for not-for-profit environmental organizations. She has led and advised open space preservation efforts and co-chaired a broad community movement that saved Stony Brook’s last forest. She was the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service liaison to the Long Island Sound Study, where she concentrated on stewardship of Long Island Sound’s ecosystems, habitat restoration projects, and invasive species control. She has extensive field experience working in Long Island’s coastal communities and natural ecosystems, from the boroughs of New York City to the tips of the East End and has received numerous awards for open space preservation efforts.
