Robin, a resident of Westport, CT, has partnered with SoundWaters to donate proceeds of a new book to enlist the next generation of stewards for Long Island Sound.

This fall, a colorful 88-page story book about Sherwood Old Mill Pond by Judith Orseck Katz debuts, The Beautiful Pond. Old Mill is an 84-acre tidal estuary and verdant salt marsh bordered by Long Island Sound. The book vividly brings to life the special seafaring cove where Westport, Connecticut was founded. All proceeds will go to SoundWaters to educate and advocate for the preservation of the traditions and waters of Long Island Sound.




Founded 25 years ago to protect Long Island Sound, SoundWaters understands that stewardship of the environment begins with knowledge. Their educational programs are experience-based, using hands-on instruction to build a deeper interest and literacy in science and to improve school achievement. They use the waters, shores and ponds of Long Island Sound as their classroom.

Said Scott Mitchell, SoundWaters chairman: “We are excited to partner with Judy and Robin on The Beautiful Pond, a unique creation highlighting attention to a valuable resource, and ensuring its future for the next generation.”
