Invasive Species Walk ‘N’ Talk

The introduction, spread, and management of invasive species is heavily influenced by the actions of citizens who live, work, and recreate on public and private lands and waterways of New York. Education and outreach about invasive species increases awareness and knowledge, to encourage behavior changes that could reduce risks throughout the State. Learn to identify several invasives that are being managed at the Preserve, control methods, and how to protect and increase native species in your community.
