Water lovers enjoyed a late summer day Sept. 28. The Setauket Harbor Task Force held its fifth annual Setauket Harbor Day at the Town of Brookhaven dock and beach on Shore Road in East Setauket.

The free event included Harbor Day boat tours, food, live music, kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing clinics, marine science exhibits, arts and crafts for kids and more.

The Setauket Harbor Task Force is a local nonprofit based in Setauket that advocates for improving water quality, enhancing community access and protecting and restoring the marine habitats and resiliency of the Setauket Harbor ecosystems. The annual event is dedicated to reconnecting residents with the harbor and stressing the importance of improving water quality and the harbor ecosystem.
