Local Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, C – Shirley) recently received the “Supporter of Nature” award from the Nature Conservancy.

“I am honored to receive the Supporter of Nature award from The Nature Conservancy. Representing the East End of Long Island, I am committed to protecting and preserving the abundance of natural resources on Long Island that are so important to the life, culture and economy of Long Island,” Zeldin said. “I look forward to continuing to work with The Nature Conservancy to protect Long Island for generations to come.”

Jessica Ottney Mahar, Director of Government Relations for The Nature Conservancy in New York said that Zeldin has been a ”key supporter” of nature by fighting for the health and conservation of New York’s lands and waters.

“We are so grateful for his support, since protecting our natural resources is so critical to our economy, our heritage and our way of life,” Mahar said. “Congressman Zeldin has advocated for the preservation of Plum Island, the restoration of Long Island Sound, and the reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, recognizing how important these bi-partisan priorities are for future generations of Long Islanders.”
