Invasive Species Removal Workday | Protecting Native Habitat

June 8 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

In the spirit of New York Invasive Species Awareness Week (NYISAW), which is June 3-9th, and in collaboration with Jay Heritage Center, the Invasives Strike Force Crew will be leading a hands-on practice workshop designed to understand the importance of native species protection, through invasive species education and control. Invasive species like black jetbead, wineberry, porcelain berry and Japanese honeysuckle will be targeted and removed by hand in several areas to protect other native species; learn how to properly identify and remove them. Bring long pants, sunscreen and bug spray, water and snacks. Work gloves will be provided.

Please be aware that poison ivy, ticks and other insects may be present in the area as we will be working off-path.

In the event of rain this workshop may be cancelled or rescheduled.
