Fishers hosting Plum Island Preservation Benefit

As members of the Preserve Plum Island Coalition,
the H.L. Ferguson Museum, the Fishers Island Conservancy,
and the Fishers Island Oyster Farm
invite you to a benefit for
Save the Sound
to support its leading role in the
Campaign to Preserve Plum Island.
We hope that you are able to attend either in-person or virtually.

The afternoon’s program begins with a presentation by
Louise Harrison, Save the Sound’s New York Natural Areas Coordinator.
Ms. Harrison will address why the preservation of Plum Island is paramount, and
how you can join the fight to preserve it for the people and wildlife of our region.

Where: F.I. Movie Theater
When: Saturday, September 18th
Time: 4pm
Immediately followed by a
Fishers Island Oysters & Champagne Reception
for in-person attendees.

A webinar link is provided below for virtual attendees.

We hope that you will be able to join us in person to learn more about this important cause. There will be pledge forms to support Save the Sound‘s Campaign to Preserve Plum Island available at the event. Regardless of vaccination status, everyone is required to wear a mask while indoors at the theater.

Be sure not to fill up on popcorn – you want to have room for the sustainably farmed Fishers Island Oysters that will be served at the reception; the location will be decided based on the weather and announced at the conclusion of the presentation.

If you are unable to attend in person, you may join us virtually on September 18th, 2021, at 4 PM, by clicking the button below:
