Open spaces, quiet hamlets, family farms and leafy neighborhoods are North Fork treasures we cannot afford  to take for granted. Riverhead’s rural character and quality of life are being eroded by the spread of excessive development and uses into places  where they don’t belong. We believe we can and must protect these precious commodities before they are lost forever.

Our best defense is an engaged and educated public that cares. Please read, think, learn and act!!
