Through Farms and Fields

Save the Date: Sunday, August 4, 2024

Thank you to all who joined us at our annual celebration of our local bounty and the Peconic Land Trust’s 40th Anniversary…it was a glorious day on August 6, 2023! You truly make it possible for us to protect the places we know and love. Thank you!

Through Farms and Fields was held at the Salm family’s historic Port of Missing Men in North Sea. This estate on Scallop Pond is adjacent to a thousand acres of protected land.

At this year’s event we honored longtime Trust supporter Howard Marks. Howard is the co-Chairman of Oaktree Capital Management and has been a donor and member of our Trustees Council for over a decade. He has had a significant impact on the Trust’s ability to conserve land here on Long Island.

“Solving any problem begins with acknowledging it. If we want to keep the East End this special place, it’s not going to happen by itself,” said Howard, adding, “Peconic Land Trust is a wonderful organization dedicated to preserving the specialness of what we have.”

The funds raised from Through Farms and Fields support the Trust’s mission to conserve Long Island’s working farms, natural lands, and heritage for our communities now and in the future.

Through Farms and Fields would not be possible without the support of many, including our event sponsors.
