Coastal Steward Long Island (CSLI) is dedicated to restoring and preserving Long Island’s coastline through education, raising public awareness, and community action. CSLI programs educate our youth and local community groups in coastal environmental awareness through beach cleanups, shellfish population restoration, and citizen science. By engaging with our local youth and communities, we foster a caring connection between Long Island residents and their shoreline, and create future generations of coastal stewards.
Join us on Saturday, November 4th in Endeavour Hall at Stony Brook University for the 3rd Annual Youth Ocean Conservation Summit (YOCS). Attendees will hear from our keynote speaker, William Wise, the Director of New York Sea Grant and former Associate Director of the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences; develop plans for projects and mini-grant applications to improve the marine environment; and much more. The first 50 student registrants will receive a free book.
