If you don’t live on the coast, Long Island Sound may not be on your radar screen. But if you live in the LIS watershed (and if you live in CT, you live in the watershed), you share a connection to this Estuary of National Significance. That stream in your backyard, or the one you pass on your way to work, is an important artery where nutrients and minerals, invertebrates, fish, even birds are connected to the tides and resources of the Sound. What you do in your backyard, matters! We will look at sustainable landscaping – including lawns, fertilizer use, and landscaped buffers, as well as a host of other pollution issues – all with The Sound in mind.
