The Full Story: The Long Island Sound and The Green Amendment
It’s Spring! As the weather grows warmer and more people get vaccinated against COVID-19, popular sites like the Long Island Sound could be teeming with visitors very soon. Will the Sound be ready? This week on The Full Story we’ll explore the health of the Long Island Sound and how federal grants are funding local groups to improve the watershed and preserve it for future generations. We’ll also take a closer look at the Green Amendment, which could guarantee a healthy environment for all New Yorkers.
A conversation with guests:
- Ken Moraff - Director, Ecosystem Protection, US EPA for the New England region
- Mark Tedesco - Director, US EPA Long Island Sound Office
- Assemblyman Steven Englebright of Setauket, Long Island
The Full Story airs Friday at 7 p.m. on all WSHU frequencies.
