Thank you for joining us!

You, and your family, friends, and neighbors make conservation happen on Long Island. Thank you for joining us at the 33rd Annual Peconinic on Saturday, June 2. Take a few moments to look back at some of the fun we had.

If you didn’t have the chance to join us this year — save the date for 2019. The 34th Peconinic will be on Saturday, June 1st, 2019

Special Thanks to Molly Channing and the Channing daughters — Francesca, Isabella, Sylvia and Nina for welcoming us — it was a very special day in celebration of conservation and Walter!

And to the partners at Channing Daughters Winery —
Larry Perrine, Allison Dubin and winemaker Christopher Tracy.
