Hempstead Harbor Protection Committee

It’s a trustworthy image along Port Washington / Roslyn’s West Shore Drive and in summers, a regional play area. It’s Hempstead Harbor.  It’s doing better these days, partly due to the work of the Hempstead Harbor Protection Committee (HHPC).  In response to the declining quality of the Harbor and the ability of multiple regional government entities to address the issue, the HHPC was formed in 1986 as the Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor. Today the HHPC has an official status, with assistance — volunteer and otherwise — from numerous private, state and nonprofit organizations.

Learn more at www.hempsteadharbor.org. The HHPC describes itself as “an inter-municipal coalition of 9 local governments” — the Villages of Sea cliff, Roslyn Harbor, Roslyn, Flower Hill and Sands Point, the City of Glen Cove, the towns of North Hempstead and Oyster Bay, and Nassau County.

At the 2009 Port Washington Harborfest, a pamphlet was produced and distributed by the Committee, “The Habitats of Hempstead Harbor.”   Since I didn’t see it on their website, I’m making it available on this site.
