2019 Sunset on the Beach!

FIConservancy President Tom Sargent speaks to a packed crowd of FIConservancy supporters July 20 at the Fishers Island Club Beach Club.

A record-breaking heat wave did not deter nearly 450 people who attended FIConservancy’s annual Sunset on the Beach, Sat. July 20, 2019 at the Fishers Island Club Beach Club.

Festivities were quickly underway as guests started arriving at 6 p.m., enjoying oysters, shrimp, drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Those in attendance were there to enthusiastically support FIConservancy’s ongoing efforts to protect the natural resources of Fishers Island.

FIConservancy President Tom Sargent told the crowd that 85 percent of land east of the Mississippi River is privately owned. He urged Fishers Island landowners to begin taking small steps by planting native vegetation to attract insects, which are a good thing! Insects attract birds and are the foundation of the “food web“, the feeding relationship among species, each connected to the other for survival.

Thank you to our sponsors!

Sunset on the Beach could not happen without your generous support!
