About this site

Welcome to Project R.I.S.E., Peconic Baykeeper’s  community science initiative to document long-term climate impacts and coastal change in the Peconic Estuary Watershed. Please help support this project by submitting your photos each time you visit this site!

Widow's Hole Preserve, 2.4 acres located on the southeastern corner of Fourth and Clark Streets. Once a storage facility for ExxonMobil the facility operated above ground storage tanks for fuel oil, kerosene and gasoline. The land was donated to Peconic Land Trust  by ExxonMobil in 2012. Over the years, erosion has made this site very vulnerable to sea level rise, which continues today at an alarming rate. Currently, there is limited access to this preserve while ongoing shoreline restoration continues.
