There are many opportunities to participate with APC in our ongoing efforts to preserve and protect our beautiful Accabonac Creek. Here are some of the things we do:


  • Meet regularly with elected and appointed officials at all levels of government to lobby on behalf of Accabonac Harbor
  • Appear at hearings and send letters in response to issues affecting Accabonac
  • Assist efforts of the East Hampton Natural Resources Department to restore and maintain water quality in the Creek
  • Oppose development that threatens water quality or habitats
  • Conduct beach and road cleanups at Landing Lane, Louse Point and Gerard Point.
  • Remove invasive plants from Louse Point and plant beach grass and other native species to help control coastal erosion.
  • Educate residents and visitors to the Accabonac watershed, especially within the Harbor Protection Overlay District (HPOD), about their potential impacts on the Creek—both positive and negative.
  • Support density reduction in Springs, including small lot acquisitions.
  • Promote preservation and restoration of meadow, wetland and marine habitats.
  • Inform residents of measures to reduce light pollution through Dark Sky education, legislation and enforcement.
  • Oppose Suffolk County Vector Control use of pesticides and reopening of mosquito ditches in the wetlands.
  • Participate in the Springs Improvement Society’s Fisherman’s Fair each August. Our booth provides fun and information for children and adults through wildlife games, unique maps and brochures.
  • Hold an annual gathering in early September at a home on the Harbor, with informative speakers, Friend of the Creek awards and an update on the year’s activities, followed by fun and refreshments.
