Earlier this month, in partnership with the Nassau Educators Federal Credit Union (NEFCU) Cares Crew, Sustainable Long Island led volunteers in beautification efforts and plantings at the Cove Animal Rescue in Glen Cove. Cove Animal Rescue is a not for profit organization whose mission is to increase the adoptability of homeless dogs and cats through training, socialization and improved surroundings that facilitate transition to a home environment.
With shovels, rakes, and an assortment of tools at the ready, volunteers cleaned, weeded, and planted perennials and small shrubs around the facility. This included the facilitation of a garden of native plantings, bordered with rocks reused from the digging of a trench for the garden on-site.
These beautification efforts enable current and future opportunities for environmental stewardship through educational programming and volunteer work. Sustainable Long Island looks forward to advancing similar environmental programs, as well as a continued partnership with NEFCU.
