Peconic Land Trust

Peconic Land Trust

 

Since 1983, the Trust has worked diligently with landowners, communities, municipalities, and partner organizations to protect nearly 12,000 acres of land, conserving more working farms on Long Island than any other private conservation organization, and securing millions of dollars from the public and private sector for land protection.

 

The Trust’s important work benefits the people and communities of Long Island by helping to protect our area’s scenic beauty and rural heritage. The Trust’s work to conserve these natural resources will have significant impact for generations to come:

  • Working farms: provide fresh, local produce
  • Natural lands and wildlife habitats: provide bio-diversity
  • Wetlands and bays: provide clean and productive water resources
  • Watersheds: provide critical drinking water supplies
  • Walking trails: provide recreational opportunities

In addition to land protection, PLT knows the importance of stewardship. Trust staff members employ innovative techniques to help farmers, landowners, and municipalities maintain the natural resources of Long Island.

Boots On The Ground NY

Boots on the Ground NY

Boots on the Ground NY is a team of Veterans that care about Americas Veterans. We’re grunts, we collect and deliver food and furniture for Veterans and their families, and these are usually the Veterans that everyone else overlooked or has forgotten. No Veteran should be hungry or sleeping on the floor. They ship care packages monthly to the military units that don’t have access to supplies. They provide what they can to those that need it most. They open up their doors and hearts to any Veteran that needs it. Veterans are not just a last name and case number to them, they build and maintain friendships. They're there for the families of the deployed. They’re here for the families of those taken in the Service of their Country. These are commitments they do not take lightly.

Boots on the Ground NY – Leaving No Veteran Behind!!

Our focus is accomplishing a better awareness of the daily struggles that a Veteran faces every day. Unconnected, PTSD, Homelessness, Service-connected-disabled, TBI, Agent Orange, POW-MIA, Service related sickness, Burn pits, Unemployment upon return from deployment; these are just some of the issues.

 A priority of BOTG-NY is not letting Our Veterans that reside & live in Hospitals be forgotten. They schedule trips to Northport VA Hospital regularly. During these visits we deliver supplies as well as friendship while bringing a lunch or dinner, this gives them the chance to sit with the Veterans and get to know them.

They have assisted with housing, general funds, furniture, furnishings, clothing, toys and food. BOTG maintains a food and furniture pantry for Veterans who were recently homeless and now living in government approved housing.
