Coyle Park Planting

Bergen County Audubon Society members Don Torino and Regina Coyle spent part of last Thursday putting in 30 native plants at Coyle Park in Little Ferry. If you’re wondering, yes, the park is named after Regina, in honor of her selfless efforts in helping people affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The plants will attract butterflies and pollinators and bloom throughout the summer. Coyle Park is located behind Memorial Middle School. Kudos to Regina, Don and the BCAS!
