Native Plant Demonstration Garden, Fishers Island

Planned, implemented, and managed by volunteers on behalf of the Fishers Island Conservancy, the goal of the Native Plant Demonstration Garden is to showcase island natives in a ‘garden’ setting. The plants selected for the garden- many of which can be seen growing ‘wild’ on the island- are every bit as ornamental as the invasive exotics that are commonly found in our more formal landscapes, and, furthermore, they serve as the foundation for a healthy environment by supporting local moth and butterfly populations.
