Native Plants Find Home at the Georgica Pond Preserve 

Thousands of pollinator friendly native plants were added to the Georgica Pond Preserve in Wainscott. A mix of seeds and plugs were used in the meadow area to provide habitat for bees, wasps, and butterflies.

The addition of evergreen and deciduous plants along the perimeter provide screening from Montauk Highway. Make sure to check out the new plants on your next visit to the preserve. The walking path is open daily.

Wading River Farmland Initiative

Donor Spotlight: James Weeks and Ina Obernesser

“A tractor pulls up to the farm stand, filled with beans still warm from the sun and dirt from the field – there’s no better food than that. The farms, and of course the food that comes from the farms, are the best thing about the East End.” – James Weeks 

James believes that there is no better meal than one freshly picked from the farm. When James and Ina learned of the Trust’s Wading River Farmland Initiative happening right down the road from their summer bungalow, they knew this was the perfect project to support. The project would ensure that land zoned for commercial use would remain in agriculture forever. And the Condzella family, who had farmed the land for three generations, would be able to continue to offer delicious, enormous strawberries and fresh asparagus to the community.  

“Change is inevitable, but here we had a chance to have some control over conservation. The East End is a throwback to another time. There is still the possibility to have a small business, own a farm, and be a part of a little community. With the Wading River project, I could help make that happen,” added James. 

We are thankful to James Weeks and Ina Obernesser for sharing their story with us. Interested in supporting the Peconic Land Trust? Contact Amanda Abraham, Director of Development, for more information about upcoming projects.
