This event will be held Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. at Oyster Bay Brewing Company (36 Audrey Ave, Oyster Bay).

Water recycling has proven effective in reducing nitrogen pollution and has saved countless gallons of water from being pumped from the aquifers under Long Island. Funded by the Greentree Foundation and prepared by Cameron Engineering, Seatuck Environmental Association has just unveiled its “Long Island Water Reuse Roadmap” which lays out a framework for implementing water recycling projects on Long Island.
John Turner is a Long Island naturalist, conservationist, writer, and a founding member of the Long Island Nature Organization and Long Island Pine Barrens Society. Besides serving as a Conservation Policy Advocate for the Seatuck Environmental Association, he is also conservation chair of the Four Harbors Audubon Society.
