Educational Programs

Protecting our water is a community effort. Peconic Baykeeper works with local groups to educate the public about our local ecosystems, the importance of water quality for our environment and our economy, and how we can preserve this valuable natural resource.

“Day in the Life of” Program

In 2017, PBK expanded our education programs across Long Island to create our next generation of clean water advocates. PBK’s involvement in the “Day in the Life of” program helped reach over 2,500 island-wide, including our spearheading of two brand new “Day in the Life of” programs: Forge River and Fire Island! We look forward to expanding our capacity this summer.

Other programs include:

  • Lectures and presentations
  • Nature walks
  • Beach cleanups
  • Boat trips (small groups)

To date, PBK has worked with the following types of groups:

  • Science classes (K-12)
  • Boy and Girl Scout Troops
  • Homeowner Associations
  • Libraries
  • Environmental non-profits and “Friends” Associations

We’re always looking for new ways to spread the word about the importance of safe, clean water! To schedule an event with us, contact our office at (631) 653-4804 or info@peconicbaykeeper.org.
