Established in 1998 as Long Island’s clean water advocate, Peconic Baykeeper uses science, education and law to defend the critical watersheds from the Peconic Estuary through the South Shore Bays. Peconic Baykeeper is a proud member of the international Waterkeeper movement, working actively with civic grounds, baymen, businesses, children, and the community at large to protect and restore water quality and Long Island’s watersheds.
