Bay Friendly Yards: Rewilding LI

Fantastic discussion last night on incorporating sustainable landscaping to not only protect our waterways, but also to promote biodiversity and healthy regional ecosystems. From the purpose of native planting to the benefits of composting, and from suggested book titles to read to where to go to identify invasive species, this discussion covered a wide variety of issues relating to habitat restoration.

Many thanks to all who joined in. We had a terrific audience who had great questions for our knowledgable panelists including Frank Piccininni, Director of Habitat Restoration at Save The Great South Bay, Raju Rajan, Director of ReWild Long Island & Dr. Hildur Palsdottir, its co-founder as well as Matt Gettinger, Owner, Long Island Natives. A shout out to Christine Csarni or the Greater Sayville Civic Association for supporting this program.

The full presentation is available on Save The Great South Bay’s YouTube channel.
