Spiritual Ecology Walks - We offer events to the general public who are interested in building inner strength and resilience. Find community, share joys and sorrows, while spending time outdoors. These walks compliment all spiritual and religious practices. All are welcome.
Quality Parks Master Naturalists- This certification program is designed to develop a cadre of citizen conservation stewards dedicated to nature education, land stewardship, and community service on behalf of Long Island’s natural areas.
Long Island Environmental Campaigns
Box Turtle Pal Conservation Campaign - The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness and take the necessary actions to support a local Long Island species in decline. Box Turtles enjoy the shade of a cool forest, the warmth of a sunny open field, a dip in a pond (but don't live in ponds), and wild raspberries.
Long Island Environmental News - provides that focused, holistic, system-wide perspective, that no other source of information provides. We pull our news from a variety sources, to benefit newspapers, social media, and readers.
