In this episode of Flanigan’s Eco-Logic, Ted speaks with George Lindsay, Jr., President of the Christeen Oyster Sloop Preservation Corp, a non-profit in Oyster Bay, Long Island with the mission of preserving Oyster Bay's Marine Heritage by involving the community in traditional boat building. 

He also serves on the boards of the Atlantic Class One Design Association, Camp DeWolfe, Concerts By The Pond, and the Long Island Traditional Music Association.

George is a lifelong resident of Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbor, New York. He studied theater at Harvard College and the Yale School of Drama, and retired in 2017 after thirty four years as General Manager of Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at Long Island University.  He is an avid sailor and, with his wife, Nancy Metz, enjoys folk music and dancing, and traveling to visit their three children and two grandchildren.

He and Ted discuss the launch of the Ida May, the first diesel powered oyster-dredging ship, which he rebuilt from scratch with other community members. They also discuss the health benefits of oysters, the history and preservation of oysters in Oyster Bay, and the future of Oyster farming.
