Legislator Fleming will be hosting a formal ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 8th at 1:30 P.M. at the Cranberry Bog Bridge. The Cranberry Bog Preserve is well loved and used by local residents and visitors from across Long Island. It's known for its beauty, ecology, and cultural value. The ribbon cutting ceremony celebrates the bridge's repair, without which the interpretive trail loop isn't possible.

In 2012, our second Master Naturalists session was underway. We met at Indian Island County Park to discuss aesthetics and ecological restoration. We studied how signage and routine trail and road maintenance can have unwanted environmental impacts on park aesthetics.

I find it to be a chess game, but the game board is not virtual. Yes, we have to worry about climate change, and, yes, we need to protect biodiversity. Biodiversity means saving half the earth from development so as to save 85% of it's native plants and wildlife . Here's the rub, if we had only done things perfectly, we would've planned before we built. Then there would be no need to play chess.
