Sisters of St. Joseph Native Meadow Restoration

Project Location: Brentwood, NY
Client: Sisters of St. Joseph

NPV assisted The Sisters of St. Joseph with the preparation of a Master Plan to guide sustainable management of their 200+ acre Brentwood campus. As part of implementation of this Master Plan, NPV was retained by the Sisters to prepare landscape and restoration plans for two native Long Island meadows on the property. The first meadow area is 3 acres (planted in 2018) and the second meadow is 4 acre meadow (planted in March 2020). The restoration involved conversion of prior lawn area to meadow in order to provide habitat for grassland songbirds, pollinators and to reduce the amount of lawn maintenance across the Brentwood campus. The project is a successful example of native meadow restoration for sustainable land practice.
