As of 2021, Anthony Marinello has been admitted onto the Board of Directors for the Long Island Native Plant Initiative. Since then, he has ascended to the position of Secretary within the Executive Board of Directors.

"The Long Island Native Plant Initiative (LINPI) is an all-volunteer cooperative effort of over 30 non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, nursery professionals, and citizens.

The mission of this organization is to protect the genetic integrity and heritage of Long Island native plant populations and thus biodiversity from a landscape to genetic level, by establishing commercial sources of genetically appropriate local (ecotypic) plant materials for use in nursery, landscaping, and habitat restoration activities."
