Who We Are

Our Mission

To preserve and protect the unique environment and ecology of Montauk through education, advocacy, and grassroots citizen action.

Since 1970, CCOM has led the effort to protect Montauk’s precious environment, successfully preserving over 70% of Montauk’s land. Thanks in large part to the work of CCOM members and volunteers, we can all enjoy Montauk’s trails, beaches, scenic vistas and rugged beauty.

Today, however, there are new threats to Montauk’s environment. CCOM is focusing our efforts on addressing three urgent priorities: cleaning up Montauk’s water, protecting its beaches and coastline, and advocating for sustainable development. We need your help to succeed. The outcome of our joint efforts will determine what our town is going to look like for generations to come. Let’s Keep Montauk Montauk!
