NPV provides environmental consulting services to the Longwood Public Library, Middle Island, NY. Services have included a detailed inventory of pre-existing site natural and landscape vegetation, and preparation of a native vegetation restoration plan in fulfillment of a previously approved Pine Barrens Commission hardship waiver.  Longwood Library is a steward of environmental resources on their site, and through guidance of NPV and their commitment to the community, have purchased and cleaned up a natural site with pine barrens and freshwater wetlands habitat.  This main library property has been further restored as part of the building expansion with a variety of ecosystem types, including grasslands, pitch pine-oak forest and freshwater wetlands, for which NPV has provided design and construction oversight services.  Monitoring of restoration areas included the identification and targeted removal of invasive species.
