Potapaug Audubon presents “Protecting Plum Island” with Curt Johnson of Save the Sound and the Connecticut Fund For The Environment, on Thursday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. at the Old Lyme Town Hall, 52 Lyme St. Plum Island, one of the islands of Long Island, N.Y., three miles south of East Lyme, is in danger of going up for auction.

Plum Island is home to more than 1,000 species. It is a federally-owned wildlife sanctuary in one of the most densely populated areas of the country, but the government is preparing to sell this national treasure on the auction block.

That’s where Save the Sound comes in. In July 2016, Save the Sound sued the federal government under the Endangered Species Act and other laws, to encourage a conservation sale.

This event is the latest in Save the Sound‘s decades-long history of fighting to clean, protect, and preserve the waters of the Long Island Sound region.

Come learn more and see what you can do to help.

This event is free and open to public.
