ReWild Long Island Zoom Program: “Our Spring Garden: Best Methods to Benefit Birds, Bees and Other Wildlife”
March 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
ReWild Long Island’s East End chapter hosts a Zoom presentation by Anthony Marinello on “Your Spring Garden: Best Methods to Benefit Birds, Bees and Other Wildlife” on Wednesday, March 29 from 7 to 8 p.m. The login info will be available at https://www.rewildlongisland.org/events.
Anthony Marinello started his company, Dropseed Native Landscaping, to give Long Islanders the plants, guidance and skills they need to transform our surroundings into a life-sustaining native plant environment for people and wildlife. Anthony studied biology at Nassau Community College and began gardening with native plants, and earned a Permaculture Design certificate at the Center for Bioregional Living, Ellenville, NY.
He’s been featured in Newsday and the Long Island Herald and was elected to the Board of the Long Island Native Plant initiative (LINPI) in 2021. An experienced public speaker, Anthony presents talks on “pocket prairies” and other Long Island-specific themes. His previous talk for ReWild Long Island can be accessed on the ReWild Long Island website.
His website, https://www.dropseednativelandscapesli.com, offers free how-tos on gardening, and he sends a lively weekly email message on seasonal topics, like “leaving the leaves” or “spring garden clean-ups” to everyone who signs up. During this public lecture, Anthony will explain what we can do in our gardens to support critical habitat and wildlife such as caterpillars, fireflies, and bees.
