Join the Capital Region PRISM, a Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for a program on invasive species and their impact on our native plant communities. The first portion of the program will include a presentation on the negative effects that invasive species pose to our ecosystems. In addition, an overview of the iMapinvasives Mobile App for reporting will be demonstrated and then utilized during the naturalist walk.
After the presentation Kristopher Williams, the CR-PRISM coordinator, and Andy Damon, the OPRHP Stewardship Specialist, will lead a short naturalist walk along Long Pond to discuss plant communities and the threats invasive species pose on the park. During the woods walk, native and invasive species will be identified. The iMapinvasives mobile app will be used to report non-native species. The talk and walk are part of the New York State Invasive Species Awareness Week. The event is free and open to the public, please register in advance for this program. The program is limited to 18 participants.
