Saving Accabonac Harbor

August 14, 2014

Accabonac Harbor in the hamlet of Springs in East Hampton, New York is a scenic and diverse tidal marsh system.  As with many areas of the town, the Harbor, also known as Accabonac Creek, has been under pressure from developers of second homes as well as other environmental threats. 

Residents of the area formed the Accabonac Protection Committee in 1985.
Francesca Rheannon talks with Cile Downs and Jorie Latham of the committee.

More information about the work of the Accabonac Protection Committee is online at
