Trees reflect on the pond at Tod's Point just behind the Sound at Greenwich Point back in March (#tbt ). This tranquil image is a perfect representation of how beautiful and peaceful Greenwich Point is as a whole. The area offers a wide array of natural habitats from a sandy shore beach to a rockier area of the coast and miles of grass and woods formed over a glacial till settled on Gneissic Granite. We can see second growth hardwoods such as Red and Black Oaks, Sycamore, Black and White Birch, Sassafras and White Pine along the trails inside the park. Down by the dunes we can see wildflowers, shrubs, Beach Plums, Red Cedars, Japanese Black and Pitch Pines. There is an abundance of wildlife ranging from skunks and raccoons to Ring-Billed Gulls and several protected migratory and year-round resident birds. It's also a prime fishing location. Overall, it's a very special area of the Sound that serves as a microcosm of the LIS as a whole.

#tbt to th grounds of Old Field Lighthouse in Old Field, Long Island back in May. While one of the most beautiful scenes you can ever find yourself in is a field of green overlooking the ocean, these are often tough places to grow as a plant or flower. Salt air, salt water and the tides all make it tough for flora to flourish in coastal regions. Particularly in the tidal marshes that are so abundant along Long Island Sound!
