Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt will continue its Sundays at Two series on Sunday, August 20th, at 2 p.m., with Executive Director and baykeeper of Peconic Baykeeper, Sean O'Neill. O'Neill will discuss the importance of the preservation of open space, particularly coastal ponds, on our water resources. He will also give a general overview of the issues facing our coastal resources in Suffolk County.

Peconic Baykeeper is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting and restoring Long Island's drinkable, swimmable and fishable waters. Since they were established as Long Island's clean water advocate in 1998, they have used science, education and law to defend the critical watersheds from the Peconic Estuary through the South Shore Bays. Peconic Baykeeper is also a member of the international Waterkeeper movement and works with civic grounds, baymen, businesses, children and the community in order to protect and restore water quality and Long Islands watersheds.

The talk will take place at the Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center. All Sundays at Two events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will also be served.

Sundays at Two will continue with Intro to Geocaching with Dai Dayton & Jean Dodds on September 10, a Box Turtle Survey Results with Lisa Prowant on October 15, and Bark: Get to Know Your Trees, a special 20th anniversary workshop with Michael on October 22.

Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt is committed "to the preservation, stewardship, and public appreciation of the unique expanse of coastal plain ponds, freshwater swamps, wetlands, and woodlands in the Town of Southampton known as the Long Pond Greenbelt, which stretches from Ligonee Creek in Sag Harbor to Sagg Pond in Sagaponack."

The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is located at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike in Sag Harbor. For more information call 631-745-0689 or visit www.longpondgreenbelt.com.
