“Let’s rethink the lawn and learn about what ‘native’ is, why that matters, and how to attract and sustain wildlife, while also managing our landscapes to reduce water, fertilizer and chemical use, all to the benefit of our local waterways and Long Island Sound,” she said in a description of the talk.
