PROTECTORS OF PINE OAK WOODS has long championed the preservation of open space on Staten Island. So, when last November, the people of New York voted to approved the $4.2 billion Environmental Bond Act (EBA), we were hopeful.
This past August, when the borough president, at the urging of Protectors, invited the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to share their EBA presentation with Staten Island, we were encouraged. And when each of Staten Island’s elected representatives, along with a host of engaged community based organizations, including Protectors, gathered at the College of Staten Island with the regional director of the DEC, we were excited. It was clear, Protectors was out front, shaping Staten Island’s concerted advocacy for our share of EBA funding.
