Keyport Environmental Commission - KEC

Mission Statement

The Keyport Environmental Commission (KEC) serves as an advocate for environmental issues that affect Keyport, residents, businesses, and visitors. Working with our Bayshore region public and private partners, the KEC volunteer members coordinate clean-up projects, preservation of our natural and historic resources, promote educational information, and support environmental activities that enhance and preserve the unique characteristics of Keyport and the region.

The KEC dedicates these public information resources to Rowland Seckinger, former Chair of the Keyport Environmental Commission, resident, Keyport Fire Museum and Twin Lights Historic Site volunteer; who tirelessly persevered to preserve Keyport Harbor and waterfront areas from 1990 until 2009. “The man never rested, always offering his time and affection for the town and people he loved without selfishness. He was an environmentalist, a nature lover and a fierce protector of our waters and open space. There is something missing here in Keyport today and we won't ever have it back”……Keyport will always have Rowland’s spirit which will lead new generations of residents to discover the treasure’s of our unique environment.
