LIS CITIZENS SUMMIT DETAILS
The Long Island Sound Citizens Summit, “Superstorm Sandy and the ‘New Normal:’ Rebuilding for Resiliency and Adapting to Climate Change,” will be held on Friday, April 26 from 9:00 A.M. to 3:15 P.M. at Iona College in New Rochelle, NY.
This year’s summit is dedicated to the memory of Art Glowka, an avid
recreational fisherman and long-time LIS citizen advocate. Art’s love for and devotion to Long Island Sound was unparalleled. He never missed the opportunity to highlight the Sound’s vibrant wildlife. The Long Island Sound community will deeply miss his passion and commitment.
