Saturday, August 17, 10:00 a.m., Orient Beach State Park, 40000 Main Rd., Orient, NY 
Join other kayakers and help save Plum Island! Help raise awareness and funds to support permanently preserving Plum Island from development! Join Save the Sound and The Long Island Paddlers at Orient Beach State Park with your kayak for a journey through the park's northern bays and creeks. (Stand-up paddleboarding also welcome.) Towards the end of the paddle we'll stop for a group rest and swim, and return to the kayak launch where the after-party will begin at 3:30 p.m. Soak up the scenic landscape and find out why it's so important to take action now to preserve one of the last remaining wild places that defines the Long Island Sound way of life.  Prizes available for top fundraisers. Register here to have fun while preserving Plum Island!
