My Yard, Our Sound project
In 2016-2017, the Long Island Explorium was awarded a grant from the Federal agency, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The Explorium worked with partners to create a model initiative that will increase knowledge, stewardship, and a sense of responsible ownership of the ecological health of the Long Island Sound through transformations of home landscaping using native plants. This project is on-going at the Explorium. Visitors can participate in an interactive My Yard, Our Sound Exhibit and learn how and why native plants directly impact the health and living resources of Long Island Sound.
