The Long Island Sound Coastal Watershed Network (LIS CWN) is focused on bringing together communities, groups and individuals working to reduce pollution loads entering Long Island Sound and its rivers, harbors, and bays. In 2021, we kicked off the Network with “Long Island Sound: Driving Local Actions to Tackle Water Pollution”, a collaborative webinar series designed to showcase and advance local actions that target pollution from activities on land including nitrogen pollution, fecal bacteria, and consumer plastics and debris – that enter the Sound’s water through sewage, stormwater, and groundwater.
Join us for our 2023 events including webinars, fieldtrips, and an in-person Summit advancing local actions for cleaner waters and healthy watersheds in Long Island Sound. Hear from scientists and practitioners about approaches to combat pollution and clean up coastal waters in communities around Long Island Sound.
