Fishers Island Conservancy Launches NEW Website
The Fishers Island Conservancy has launched a new website designed for fast, easy access to all things FIConservancy! www.ficonservancy.org
Learn about the benefits of planting native vegetation, how to identify and control invasives, and what it takes to maintain restored grasslands. Enjoy an ongoing video record of Fishers Island’s flora and fauna through FIConservancy Naturalist Justine Kibbe’s Video Snippets. Still photos with descriptions and observations are also available as Field Notes, along with Audio Clips. All are easily accessible through the menu item, “From the Field”.
To get started, click on ficonservancy.org. Under From The Field you’ll find ficonservancy.org/from-the-field or under What We Do learn about ficonservancy.org/grassland-restoration. For something unexpected, visit ficonservancy.org/moths. The variety of the moths’ color and design never ceases to amaze!
Moths are accessed through Grassland Restoration:
We’d love to hear from you! Send comments, suggestions or photos to post to FIConservancy Executive Director Kristen Peterson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
