SENCER-ISE/NCSCE is proud to partner with the Long Island Explorium in supporting the Port Jefferson Rain Garden!
Funding provided by:

Rain Gardens at Port Jefferson Harbor: Linking Water, Wildlife and Waterways (NY)
Supporting citizen science and local sustainability, the Long Island Explorium has installed 2 native plant rain gardens Village Center location and Village Hall location with volunteers with one more location coming soon. The rain gardens are located in high-visibility public sites and provide natural landscaping guidance to community members in Port Jefferson. The project will demonstrate to visitors using the Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry how rain gardens improve the water quality and biodiversity of Long Island Sound.
