Events & Activities
Throughout the year, the Peconic Land Trust hosts a series of events to bring together our donors, our landowners, government officials and other concerned members of the community to celebrate our successes and help to raise funds to support our future work. We hope that you will join us often at what are truly unique and memorable moments.
