As a longtime supporter of the Peconic BayKeeper and former Board member, I can speak first hand of the quality and caliber of this organization, its Board, and most importantly its leader, Kevin McAllister. Kevin, and the organization are dedicated to the most important natural resources in the area, the Peconic and Great South Bays. The quality of the Bays, thier fish and wildlife and water quality are the keys to the quality of life and economic future of Long Island's East End. The BayKeeper serves to ensure that the Bays are protected and flourish for current and future generations. Larry Kast Former Board Member Current Vice President, Honeywell
