My family has been coming to the seashore for generations. Some of my fondest memories are of family times spent at the shore. Bodysurfing and fishing with my father and children and many days hanging out on the beach or on the back bays sailing, kayaking or swimming. There is nothing like taking a walk on the beach or watching a glorious sunrise coming up over the ocean or a sunset in the back bays.

I want to ensure that my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren can continue to come to the seashore and enjoy a lifetime of memories. It is a very special place where many enjoy the wonders of the beach, ocean and the back bay environments. For this reason and many more, I strongly support The Wetlands Institute. The Wetlands Institute’s mission is to promote appreciation, understanding & stewardship of wetlands and coastal ecosystems through their programs in research, conservation, and education. They have education programs for students and are doing internationally renowned research for the conservation of the seashore environments. The institute’s work will help protect the natural resources of the seashore and help our families to continue building endless memories.
