Hike Through Local Park to Identify Invasive Species
The second week in July is Invasive Species Awareness Week in New York. There are numerous activities across the state to raise citizen awareness about plants, animals and aquatic invasives. On today’s Community Corner, a walking tour of the Point Au Roche Nature Center north of Plattsburgh identifies some terrestrial and aquatic invasives.
The 840 acre Point Au Roche State Park has trails that wind through forested areas, open meadows, wetlands and along the shores of Lake Champlain. Mark Malchoff and Curtis Buker from SUNY Plattsburgh’s Lake Champlain Research Institute and Lake Champlain Sea Grant led a walk thru the park to identify the invasive species intruding upon the park and the region.
Numerous activities and presentations are scheduled across the Adirondack region this week to raise awareness about invasive species.
