Restoring Hoyt Island

Our three acre island located in Long Island Sound between Wilson Point and Village Creek is important and threatened habitat.  Ten bird species–endangered,threatened, or species of concern– forage and nest here, including the American Bald Eagle.  It is a nesting habitat for the Diamondback Terrapin.  We are committed to cleaning up the contamination discovered there.

We have a remediation plan ready for implementation this fall, if we get funding. We are raising $130,000 in 2017.  Please be part of our solution.
