Resources available; 1,000 Yards Campaign announcement


Bellport Village’s Environmental Committee, which hosted Saturday’s talk at the Community Center, offered a wealth of resources on a back table, including books like “Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife,” “Prairie Up,” and “Nature’s Best Hope.” There was also a Seed and Soil Sale flyer from CEED (orders due by March 25). The sale offers quality plant seed and soil treatments that won’t pollute precious groundwater, thanks to SOS Compost, Bayport Flower Houses, and High Mowing Organic Seed Company, who helped organize the sale. 

Committee chair Marc Rauch also announced the 1,000 Yards Campaign.

There are over 1,000 homes in Bellport Village, so the name 1,000 Yards was lassoed for the Bellport Environment Committee’s upcoming initiative on April 22, Earth Day, said Rauch. “We’ve created a free, detailed guide on how to take these simple steps and will be distributing handsome yard signs, also free, so we can show our pride at doing the right thing.”

The Environmental Committee members who helped pull the first community forum Saturday are: Ally Forstmann, Darcy Stevens, Elettra Wiedemann, Howard Read, JD Lury and Steve Dougherty.
