Phragmites Pull at West Brook

May 31 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Seatuck for a volunteer phragmites pull at West Brook! The only dam on West Brook, a major tributary of the Connetquot River, failed in 2019 and allowed the artificial pond behind it to drain. For the first time in over 100 years, the brook could once again flow naturally from its headwaters in Bayard Cutting Arboretum State Park down to the tidal reaches of the Great South Bay. It is now one of only a few free-flowing streams on Long Island. It has great ecological potential as a place where migratory fish can return and other native riverine species can once again find a home. Seatuck is excited to share that N.Y.S. Parks has decided not to repair the dam! Join Seatuck on Friday, May 31st, 2024, as they work to remove invasive species at West Brook and continue to improve stream habitat for diadromous fish.
