My Yard, Our Sound!
You can help the birds and the bees and the fish!
A Maritime Explorium project funded by the Long Island Sound Future Fund, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
We can help you transform 100 square feet of your yard into a butterfly, bee and bird friendly habitat that keeps our waterways clean and clear for our fish friends!
You will get practical information on how you can transform a lawn into a garden without breaking your back or the bank! Upon completion of the project you are eligible to receive a $50 reimbursement towards the purchase of appropriately sourced native plants!
- Your property must be within the Long Island Sound watershed. That means, the water on your street drains to the Sound. If you are unsure about your eligibility please email us for help!
- You must have authorizaiton to do the work on the property of interest.
- Select appropropriate plants, lists will be provided.
- Share a “before” and “after” photo of your 100 sq. feet. We can’t wait to see your transformation!
- Registration required.
