If  you haven’t been to the beautiful and pristine Richard’s Preserve, allow this work session to be your introduction.  We need volunteer help to repair a short section of trail and to control an infestation of invasive species coming in from the roadside.  Please bring a shovel and sturdy work gloves (some provided).  Meet at the Preserve kiosk on Honey Hollow Road near house #134.  RSVP to or call 914-205-3533.

The PRLC is a member of the Hudson Valley Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), a working group that strives to collectively address invasive species issues for the protection of biodiversity and environmental systems.
