John E Conover, Jr , P.E
Environmental Engineer
Long Island, New York, USA

The purpose of this website is to share environmental stories with you.  Some of the stories are from the news, some I wrote, and my friend Carl wrote one.

I hope that you will learn something interesting about the environment or nature
and then you will want to learn more.
I will also put in some of my photos and my father’s photos from World War 2.

Please note that I am not seeking employment, I am retired. I am redoing this website and it is not complete yet. Please visit again in the near future and there should be more stories
If you have any questions about any of the stories or any environmental questions, please send an email to me.Thanks.
