About the Conservation Committee

Conservation Committee reports and discussions of key issues by The Linnaean Society of New York (LSNY) members will appear in the LSNY News-Letter.

Important updates and notices of conservation-related meetings and events will appear on the Linnaean website.

Current Conservation Committee projects include an on-going review of the rehabilitation efforts following Hurricane Sandy at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge and Floyd Bennett Field (see May 2013, Volume 67, Number 3, of the LSNY News-Letter) as well as monitoring the progress of the natural gas pipeline that will cut across the Rockaway peninsula and Jamaica Bay (see January ⁄ February 2013, Volume 66, Number 8 ⁄ 9 of the LSNY News-Letter).
