New York State Sea Grant wants to help Lake Ontario property owners roll out the welcome mat for wildlife along the 712-mile southern shoreline that includes Central New York.

The organization has come up with a guide to help property owners make their shoreline more attractive for the more than 3,500 species of plants and animals and 90 species of fish found along the Great Lakes.

The Lake Ontario Stewardship Guide is available free on CD or online to the cottage and home owners who occupy 42 percent of the southern shore, New York Sea Grant officials said.

The guide includes tips for making a wildlife-friendly shoreline through landscaping with native plants and protecting shoreline habitat for fish.

Molly Thompson , a dune and habitat educator with New York Sea Grant in Oswego, is the guide's author.

To request a free copy, write to New York Sea Grant, 62B Mackin Hall, SUNY-Oswego, Oswego 13126, or call the office at (315) 312-3042. The CD is accompanied by a free packet of wildflower seeds. The guide is also available online at .
