Peconic Estuary Program


Here are a few tips for protecting our environment courtesy of our friends at the Peconic Estuary Program:

  • Eliminate or reduce fertilizer and pesticide use by planting native wildflowers, grasses, and trees.   
  • Use natural cleaning products in the home, yard and on the boat.  
  • Bring old medications to local police stations for proper disposal.
  • Stay off beach dunes and fenced-off areas, remove trash and clean up pet waste.
  • Store hazardous products in spill proof containers. Dispose of old products on STOP collection days.
