blackberry to attract fruit-eating species like catbird, robin,mockingbird and oriole. She also planted monarda to attract hummingbirds, and goldenrod, aster, joe pye weed, swamp milkweed and butterfly weed to attract beneficial insects and butterflies. <br />

landscaping, and has worked with The Nature Conservancy to design a native plant garden for our Uplands property. wrote a successful small grant for a native plant restoration at <br />
Garvies Point Museum and Preserve, a Nassau County site, that required over 650 volunteer hours to clear of a massive infestation of rosa multiflora, Norway maple, garlic mustard and <br />
burning bush (chain saws and pick axes), plant, and maintain over the course of a year.
