Lindley-Morrison Signature Walks Series | 2022


CCOM and Third House Nature Center are excited to announce the Lindley-Morrison Signature Walks, a series of four annual walks honoring the founders of our two organizations and their significant and long-standing contributions to Montauk. Thank you to everyone who took part in this fantastic, historical walk on a crisp and sunny February morning. Walk #1: Historic Lindley House Walk | Montauk County Park The walk started at Big Reed Path (off East Lake Dr.) and continued through a densely wooded section of the park to its central grasslands and then on to historic Lindley House. On the return, hikers took in the vista from Squaw Hill, which sits above Oyster Pond and Block Island Sound. Photo Credits: Richard Silver

Floating Wetlands Removal | October 2021


On Saturday, October 23rd, CCOM and volunteers worked together to remove our Fort Pond floating wetlands, a pilot water quality improvement project designed to remove excess nutrients which have been fueling seasonal harmful algal blooms in the Pond. The islands themselves will be stored for future re-use, and the harvested plants have made their way to the Montauk Community Garden for composting. A few samples will be sent to Hofstra University for analysis to quantify nutrient removal capacity. This project literally 'took a village'; we could not have done it without the help and generosity of our incredible community. A heartfelt thanks goes out to East Hampton Town, East Hampton Town Shellfish Hatchery, East Hampton Ocean Rescue, Mickey’s Carting, Gurney’s Resorts, the Montauk Community Garden, 7-11 Montauk, Montauk Surfcasters Association and the nearly 45 community volunteers who donated their Saturday to helping us. Together, we can help restore Montauk's waters! THANK YOU! (Photos: Richard Silver |
