Return of The Osprey

Hey, Long Island - What's in Your Yard!

David La Magna

Hey Long Island, what's in your yard? If you have native plantings/landscapes we want to know what biodiversity you’re attracting! The Biodiversity of Long Island Native Gardens (BLING) is a project hosted on iNaturalist where homeowners can share observations about the biodiversity they are supporting in their own yards. Everyone can participate and it's free! So if it walks, flies, crawls or anything in between, BLING is a place for you to share and inspire others.

Please share sightings of any fauna (insects, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, etc!) found on private homeowner land that is found in and around native plantings or landscapes. When possible, include in the notes what plant species the animal is interacting with. The goal is to gather data on the concept of “if you build it (or conserve it) they will come” and as many of us on Long Island employ more native plantings in our landscapes the question is what biodiversity are we helping to restore?
