A new idea for native plantings was discussed this past winter with Mindy Block (Quality Parks), Joy Cirigliano (Four Harbors Audubon Society), and Brian Macmillan (Village Golf Superintendent). They spoke about how to feature native plantings that would not only benefit bees, birds, and pollinators, but would also add value to the golf course with eco-friendly certification. Subsequently, Quality Parks spoke with Caren Markson (Village Gardener) for the ways and means to fundraise for continued native plantings.
Towards this end, Quality Parks contacted the Sandra Swenk (Suwasset Garden Club). The Garden Club became a Supporting Member and have requested a presentation as well (in the works). Quality Parks subsequently contacted Dennis Brennan and Bob Huttemeyer (Rotary Club of Port Jefferson) to arrange a presentation on July 11, 2017. All are welcome to support this charity effort for going native in the Village of Port Jefferson.
