We invite everyone to join us at the Purcell Preserve, the new addition to the Hempstead Plains, Saturday morning 9:00-12:00 for our Fall planting. South Shore Audubon has been partnering with the Friends of Hempstead Plains to assist in restoring the Purcell parcel to its native Prairie habitat. A great deal has already been done, but we need your help! We will be planting some native species, and preparing the soil in a nearby area for another planting in the Spring. The Preserve is now closed to the public, so this will be an opportunity for you to walk through it. Light refreshments will be served. If you can make it, please contact Betty Borowsky (bborow@optonline and 516 764-3596) to get directions and further information. Looking forward to seeing you then.
