Terrestrial Invasive Species Hand-Pull
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join SLELO PRISM on June 8th from 10 am – 12 pm at South Colwell Pond at the Montario Point Boat Launch located on Montario Point Road, Henderson, NY, to help remove an invasive species called yellow flag iris. No experience is needed and tools will be provided. Bring your own gloves and dress for the weather as this is an outdoor event.
Commonly grown and transplanted for its showy yellow flowers, the yellow flag iris (Iris pseudacorus) has invaded wetlands and other aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats and can be found at the edges of streams and ponds, in open and forested flood plains, along shorelines, and in freshwater and brackish marshes.
