Members of the Long Island Board of Realtors presented a check for $26,000 Northport Village Trustee meeting this week.
The check will support the Oyster FLUPSY–Floating Upwelling System– to help promote clean water in Northport Harbor. The aquaculture program will partner the Village of Northport with Huntington Maritime Services and Cornell University over a five year agreement. This project will help create a natural oyster habitat for over 100,000 oysters that will aid in filtering and cleaning waterways in Northport.
“On behalf of the Long Island Board of Realtors and our Huntington Township Chapter, we are
excited to support such a great community project like this,” said Matt Arnold, president of the LIBOR Board of Directors. “Our waterways play such a vital role to our environment, economy, and lifestyles for every Long Islander. LIBOR will always continue to work with our local communities to make Long Island a great place to live, work, and play.”
