Delaney Cassidy, a 2013 Babylon graduate from West Gilgo Beach, grew up as a steward
of our local Town of Babylon beaches.
Delaney has participated in numerous beach grass plantings and cleanups and has served as ‘student editor’ for the Save the Beaches Newsletter. Delaney is also an environmental intern for the Town of Babylon Department of Environmental Control participating in projects such as counting piping plovers and terns and cultivating clams in the Cedar Bay Marina.

She promises to always advocate for and help preserve our beautiful shorelines. She is the proud recipient of Save the Beaches $1,000 College Scholarship Award.
Preserve and Protect our Coastal Heritage, Wildlife, and Wetlands.
That is Save the Beaches mission statement.
