All week long, North Fork natives have been raising a glass to the coastlines they call dear, joining water lovers across the nation for the 26th Annual National Estuaries Week — using social media to spread water quality awareness.
Pictures of people raising a glass of water near local water bodies have been filling Twitter and Facebook feeds across the nation this past week, an effort that ends Saturday.
The Peconic Estuary Program organized photo opportunities from Greenport to Riverhead, bringing public officials, environmentalists, business owners, and residents together.
To get involved, share a photo of your tribute with the hash tag to the Peconic Estuary Program facebook page or twitter.
Here are just a few of those who took the time to #ToastTheCoast — from the North Fork, Riverhead and beyond.
