"These 12.4 acres of rolling hills — once a horse farm — are currently undergoing native plant restorations, which will return these seasonally dry wetlands to the bucolic prairie meadows of earlier times. During the summer, enjoy the antics of butterflies hovering over the 2,000 square foot monarch butterfly garden, featuring flowers of milkweed, Joe Pye Weed, cardinal flower, and bee balm, just to name a few. Then view and learn about recently planted native shrubs, growing in the hedgerow between the two meadows."
"Right now I could use help with debarking autumn olive, which is the only way to prevent these shrubs from cloning. Since the summer is the best time for this, if someone wants to show up weekly, learn, and work independently, they could become proficient enough to help on other sites that also have problems with autumn olive." - Julie Sullivan, Go Native Long Island
