Working Together

The Noyac Civic Council volunteers who participated in the April 2 Long Beach Restoration project are truly inspiring. Approximately 35 adults and Pierson students did an outstanding job of planting native grasses and shrubs, with the mentoring of the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Division experts, around the memorial rock.

The goal was to begin an environmentally sustainable project that will protect the beloved park for generations. Here is an example of the fabulous tasks that can accomplished when the Southampton Town and private individuals work together. This event, on a freezing cold day, confirms the love residents have for this recreational jewel.

The council hopes that the town will develop a comprehensive plan that will include restoring the entire one-mile stretch of Long Beach. We have developed a preliminary plan and areas of concern that may be viewed on our website,

Many thanks to the volunteers, Cornell Cooperative Extension experts, Parks and Recreation Director Kristen Doulos, Town Trustee Ann Welker, and Southampton Town Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni and Councilman Rick Martel for joining in our fun activity. We look forward for continuing our partnership.
