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 on our ecosystems. In addition, an overview of the iMap Invasives Mobile App for reporting will be demonstrated and then utilized during the naturalist walk.

After the presentation Sam Schultz the CR-PRISM Terrestrial Coordinator, and Becky Sibner, Forest Pest Specialist, from the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation from Parks will lead a short naturalist walk along the nature center trail 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 iMap Invasives 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.
