Toast the Coast 2014

ToastTheCoast_LISS2014

The Long Island Sound Study, part of EPA’s National Estuary Program, is asking residents of Long Island Sound to join in a nationwide “Toast the Coast” during National Estuaries Week, on September 20-27, 2014. The Long Island Sound Study is part of a network of 28 National Estuary Programs working to improve and restore the nation’s most important estuaries – the vibrant coastal areas where rivers meet the sea.

As part of the celebration, all are invited to share pictures of their toasts honoring the Sound, and its clean rivers and harbors on Long Island Sound Study’s Facebook or Twitter pages. They will be joined by thousands of individuals and organizations around the country celebrating with toasts and other National Estuaries Week events.

For more information about Toast the Coast or National Estuaries Week, please visit Restore America’s Estuaries’ National Estuaries Week webpage.
