Invasive Species/Peatland Restoration workday at Wyomanock Center for Sustainability

Date: Saturday, July 27, 2019 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Naturalist Series

Help restore the largest and best example of a calcareous peatland in Rensselaer County. The Wyomanock Center is hosting a volunteer "restoration workday" led by Dr. David Hunt. Following a presentation on the ecological significance of the site, the threats posed by invasive species, and how to identify the target invasives, participants will remove as many of the invasive plants as possible from this special wetland. Wear footwear for wet habitats and bring work gloves. Lunch provided.

Meet at the Wyomanock Center for Sustainable Living; park at the dirt parking area on the north side of Wyomanock Road, about .5 mile west of NY Route 22 in Stephentown.

Register online and for questions, contact David Hunt at 518-279-4124. No charge.

Event can be used as credit toward becoming a Rensselaer Naturalist.
