Native plants play a key role in protecting Long Island's diverse habitats and ecosystem. Their use improves our environment, reduces the demand for non-renewable resources and improves our water and air quality. This exhibit celebrates the native beauty of Long Island and the creative community of artists who help us interpret it.
