Native and invasive species

July 21, 2011

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — There will be a free public program about invasive species in the local area on Saturday, July 23 at 11 a.m. Learn to identify the top 10 priority invasive plants for the Catskills, as well as two of the most important forest pests for the state. Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership Coordinator Meredith Taylor will talk about some ways for you to get involved and help to stop the spread of invasive species in our region.

The group will meet at Morgan Outdoors, 46 Main Street, and will go on to Livingston Manor’s Renaissance Park, where there is a native plant garden and bountiful examples of invasive plants such as Japanese Knotweed. Bring a box lunch and stay to enjoy the park’s riverside setting along Willowemoc Creek. RSVP to 845/439 5507 by Saturday at 10 a.m.
