Our Mission

The Coalition to Save Hempstead Harbor (CSHH) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1986. CSHH is dedicated to identifying and eliminating environmental threats to Hempstead Harbor and the surrounding communities. Our objective is to advance the public interest in protecting and restoring our local environment to its full ecological and economic potential.

The fundamental force behind CSHH’s efforts is the belief that concerned and informed citizens can make a difference in events that shape the future. We seek to increase awareness of environmental issues and promote a greater appreciation of the local environment. Most important, the public is encouraged to participate in local conservation issues.

A Fond Adieu

One of our long-time dedicated board members and a CSHH founder, Corin Basilion, has moved away from the community she and her family loved for so many years. Corin will always remain close to us in spirit and will continue to be a valued resource as she and her husband, Nick, begin their new life upstate. It is with sincere gratitude that the CSHH Board of Directors has asked Corin to remain with us as a Board Member Emeritus, and she has accepted the honor. Corin offered us a heartfelt farewell as she was preparing to leave Glen Cove, and with her permission we have included it here because it tells of why we formed and why we continue.
