Abramski Family Donates Conservation Easement to Protect Wildlife Habitat and Shoreline in East Moriches

Our thanks to Suzanne and Robert Abramski of East Moriches for protecting an important shoreline habitat through the donation of a conservation easement to the Peconic Land Trust. The Abramskis’ decision to make this gift was guided by their love of the local wildlife, especially birds, along Harts Cove and Moriches Bay in East Moriches.

The easement covers approximately nine acres of land, which includes freshwater and saltwater wetlands that contribute to the health of nearby waterways and preserves the scenic open space for the benefit of the public. It is important to note that this property could have been developed with a residential structure in an area that faces increasing development pressure. Located within the Town of Brookhaven, the Abramski property is within the East Moriches Historic District: a priority area of the Town to protect the scenic and cultural character of this rural area. 

“We are so pleased to be able to help Suzanne and Bob protect and preserve their land. Their dedication to keeping these wetlands vital for the local wildlife, and contributing to the improvement of the local waterways can serve as an inspiration to many homeowners on Long Island,” said John v.H. Halsey, President of the Peconic Land Trust. 

“We all have the opportunity to make a difference. We thank the Abramskis for choosing to donate this conservation easement.”
