Marine Debris Cleanup: Adopt a Beach

Clear marine debris from your favorite beach or private beach and Michele Klimczak, FIConservancy Marine Debris Coordinator, will haul it away and sort it. She will also memorialize your achievement with a photograph posted on Facebook.

John Thatcher Native Garden

The Demonstration Garden has been renamed the John Thatcher Native Garden in memory of John Thatcher, an early champion and co-founder of FIConservancy. Located just west of the Movie Theater, it is part of FIConservancy’s long-term grassland restoration project on land owned by Southold and managed by the FIFerry District, including the Parade Grounds, Elizabeth Airport, Race Point and South Beach. The garden was designed and planted specifically to encourage the use of native plants by “demonstrating” how native plants would look in a formal garden setting. Mere Doyen Photo
