Tell your State Senator that you support S-8170, which would reduce the nitrogen content in lawn fertilizers, and give our bays a break.
Kudos to Grassroots Environmental Education, our partner in the I Love Long Island Campaign for ‘bay friendly yards’! Thanks to them and to …
Hiring a landscaper for 2018? Make sure they are being 'green' about it. Ask them to use a mulching mower so that the grass clippings can feed your lawn. That is the best food your lawn can have.

If you have pets or children, love nature and respect your neighbors, avoid pesticides. If you kill the bugs, you kill the soil. There will be fewer birds, amphibians. Pesticides also have a way of ending up in our drinking water and our bays, rivers and ponds. We are seeing a global collapse of insects, including the pollinators. Let's stop with the Roundup. There are natural ways of dealing with insects. Dragon flies, bats, and birds like Purple Martins are all voracious mosquito eaters. Take this route over Mosquito Squad. Your grandchildren will thank you.
