Save the Sound
Working in both New York and Connecticut, Save the Sound has established a 40-year track record of restoring and protecting the waters and shorelines of the Sound. We have led coalitions working with elected officials in Connecticut to fund critical clean water projects that are making a difference. With our legal expertise, we brought together scores of towns and thousands of ordinary people to defeat a massive natural gas facility in the middle of the Sound called Broadwater. We have restored marshes and river passages at 20 sites around the Sound so many thousands more fish can migrate safely.
Our success is based on thousands of ordinary people teaming up to give a little time to make a big difference. Last year, 2,500 volunteers joined our coastal cleanups and removed eight tons of trash from 50 miles of shoreline. Hundreds of others took five minutes to call elected officials and saw clean water dreams become reality. Scores of volunteers spent an afternoon planting a dune or restoring a marsh. We, the people, are the key to saving the Sound!
