Purpose

The purpose of the Public Involvement and Education Work Group is to:
• Inform the public about the health of Long Island Sound and the work of the Long Island Sound Study and its partners to restore and protect Long Island Sound.
• Engage citizens to join in efforts to restore and protect the Sound, through individual behavior change that leads to improved environmental practices, and volunteering in outreach, citizen science, and habitat restoration projects.
