Environmental Awareness Day!
Due to speaker availability, VOBEC has had to post-pone our annual Environmental Awareness Day (EAD), originally scheduled for August 16th.
Please join us on Sunday, September 20th from 11am-1pm in the Community House to join in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of FINS: Looking 50 years back and 50 years forward.
This year's EAD promises to be an interesting and engaging presentation by two well known speakers. Discussing the fight against the Moses road and for a Fire Island National Seashore will be investigative reporter and journalist, Karl Grossman. Dr. Charles Flagg from the Stony Brook School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences will discuss the challenges of Fire Island in the next 50 years.
Light snacks will be provided.
On Saturday, May 23, 2015, VOBEC held an informal environmental get together at the Ocean Beach home of VOBEC Commissioner, Diana Hein. FINS Park Ranger Elizabeth Rogers presented the 25 guests with an update on FINS' southern pine beetle suppression efforts and plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of FINS' formation.
