CCOM Benefactors

Sustainer Circle

CCOM was founded in 1970 by Hilda Lindley in opposition to an East Hampton Town proposal to build 1,400 houses on the 1,000-acre historical home and burial ground of the Montaukett Indians – Indian Field, now Montauk County Park. This was the beginning of numerous hard-fought battles and subsequent victories to save over 3,000 acres of Montauk’s lands – Camp Hero, Hither Hills, Culloden, Shadmoor, Amsterdam Beach and most recently, Carol Morrison Park at Fort Pond House – are now safe from development as state, county or town parks thanks to the tireless efforts of CCOM and our dedicated supporters.

Montauk’s natural beauty and environment are threatened by declining water quality, eroding beaches and coastlines, and  inappropriate development.  These complex environmental challenges don’t have quick fixes.  They require a comprehensive multi-year approach – and that’s just what CCOM’s environmental experts have put in place. We’re working with federal, state, town and community leaders to turn the tide and make real progress; but we need sustained support to deliver lasting solutions.

You can help us protect Montauk by joining a growing number of your friends and neighbors who have joined CCOM’s Sustainer Circle and made a three-year financial pledge to support Montauk. CLICK HERE to become a CCOM Sustainer.

Concerned Citizens of Montauk and its Board of Directors would like to thank the following individuals for their generous support in making 3-year sustainer pledges to help CCOM’s ongoing work to protect and preserve Montauk’s environment.
