 BACKGROUND: A network of organizations united by concern for Long Island Sound, the Long Island Sound Alliance was created in January 1991 at the culminating conference of National Audubon Society's year-long Listen to the Sound Citizens' Hearings Campaign. Over 175 organizations co-sponsored these hearings, and over 1,500 people participated. These meetings gave rise to the Listen to the Sound Citizens' Agenda which gives recommendations for the future health of Long Island Sound.
