Conser\ ationists dedicated to
saving ( he Long Island Wetlands
have a once- in- a- lifetime opportunity
to preserve some
precious threatened acres. The
importance of the remaining
acres along the shoreline to any
future Long Island National Wetlands
Park is clear. If possible,
they should not be destroyed.
The County of Nassau owns
about 200 irreplaceable acres
of salt marsh in Seaford. It is
clearly shown on the Coast and
Geodetic map as a part of the
Wetlands. The County plans
to destroy all this to construct
an 18 hole golf course. A part,
at least, should be spared in
the interest of conservation. Instead
of a thin and useless 100-
fodt strip that will be left, 40
to 50 acres should be left to
nourish and protect the ecology
of the area.
I have appealed to County Executive
Nickerson to review the
County proposal for such wanton
destruction. I reminded him
of his recent testimony in Washington
calling on everyone to preserve
and protect the Wetlands.
I assume this includes both him
and the County of Nassau.
If the County Executive considers
a golf course essential
he can still provide for a reasonable
number of acres for conservation.
If those who love the Wetlands
and encourage conservation will
speak up, this battle can be won.
Last year when the Secretary of
the Interior backed a plan to build
dams in the Grand Canyon, I
pointed out that such destruction
was not good conservation and
was inconsistent with his call
to preserve the Long Island Wetlands.
I'ublic awareness caused
the Secretary to change his mind
and his position.
Likewise the County Executive
should respond to a reasonable
request to have the County practice
what it preaches to others—
good conservation on behalf of
I cannot believe the County
will insist on this destruction.
Certainly 40 to 50 acres can be
spared and saved.
We should all unite and raise
our voices to protect and keep
the important County land forever
How can we sit back and watch
a few holes of a golf course replace
this— our priceless heritage--
our precious Wetlands?
