Overall Website Observations: I learned about invasive plants, native plants that can replace invasive plants, and safe removal processes of invasive plants.
Long Island Explorer Website Observations: I found the disposal of invasive plants by solarizing them to stop photosynthesis: trapping the plants in clear bags for a month or two to basically "cook them" until they are fully wilted and safe to dispose.
LI Geology & Plant Communities Website Observation: Tons of very insightful and helpful information about several different plant species.
Trails, Greenways, & Sustainability Website Observations: They have been working for years on restoring Carpenter park. The articles seem a bit out dated so an update would be really cool!
Wildlife Website Observations: There is a section [Planting for Birds] about how they create gardens of plants that produce great amounts of pollen, nectar and berries to preserve several species of migrant birds and insects.
Finances Website Observations: Unsure how the park resources raised funds.
What Needs Improvement: Curious if there are any events and how they raise funds.
Question Asked: No phone number - Email sent - Good Evening! I was looking at your site and was wondering if there was an update on the Restoration of Carpenter Farm park! Talk soon!
Response: Things have been on hold for a while. Hope to get back there soon.
