State Senator Frank Padavan joined members of the Alley Pond Environmental Center (APEC) and local environmental enthusiasts at a day-long event to mark National Estuaries Day on Saturday, September 26.

Estuaries, where streams and rivers meet the sea, are incubators for an incredible amount of life – avian, aquatic and amphibian. National Estuaries Day was established in 1988 to foster awareness regarding the importance of estuaries and wetlands and the increased need to protect and preserve them throughout the country.

The APEC event highlighted the environmental conservation efforts taking place on the Little Neck Bay and featured speakers and exhibits from environmental groups in Queens and throughout the city.

Padavan, shown here with Assistant Commissioner of Parks and Recreation Nancy Barthold (left) and APEC Education Director Aline Euler, at the event, was instrumental in founding and supporting APEC as one of the city’s premiere environmental educational facilities.
