Mike Shouvlin Water Conservation Garden

A showcase of native species capable of surviving only with what Mother Nature provides. Visit for ideas of drought-tolerant species for your shore home such as yucca, Montauk daisy, chaste tree, and crepe myrtle. Explore the walking paths, which are laid out in a design echoing a ship’s wheel, and take a rest from the sun on one of the benches.

The garden is named for Mike Shouvlin, a member of the Water Advisory Commission and garden’s first keeper.
