Front Garden Planted  
Over 20 Boyscouts and Nassau Community College students transformed the look of the Education Center by removing weeds around it and replacing them with natives.   Thank you to all who came out, especially to Eagle Scout Candidate Scott Henneberger and his family, as well as the South Shore Audubon Society, who granted funds for restoring habitat with native plants.  

Invasive Species Controlled 
Black Swallow-wort appeared for the first time on this section of Plains in 2017.  It is a highly invasive plant which is particularly detrimental to Monarchs.  Volunteers did an amazing job knocking back the Swallow-wort and thus theslotsbay.com protecting Monarchs.
