    Habitat Gardening in Central New York (Central New York chapter of Wild Ones) has a website and facebook page:
    Personally, I’m a photographic naturalist with a love for native plants and encourage people to “go native” as much as possible. I have a number of blogs, including and allow NPO’s free use of most of my photos. I also have a number of photo sites, but none are specific to botany.
