The Office of Long Island Sound (OLISP) uses the funds generated from the sale of "Preserve the Sound" license plates to support schools, municipalities, environmental groups, and other non-profit organizations that apply for grants for projects that are beneficial to the Long Island Sound. Some of the projects made possible through the LIS Fund include:
- Protection of valuable habitats and species.
- Fishing piers and boardwalks that increase public access.
- Education signs that inform the public about the diversity of plant and animal species in the LIS ecosystem.
Greenways may someday make it possible to hop on your bike and ride from New Haven to the Massachusetts border and beyond. Imagine paddling in a canoe on long stretch of the Housatonic and Connecticut Rivers, enjoying unbroken scenic vistas. Your purchase of a greenways license plate will show your support for these systems of trails and corridors. It has been said that greenways connect the places we live with the places we love.
