Volunteer at Clark Preserve March 3, 2018

Our first volunteer work session of 2018 will be held Saturday March 3, 10am-noon at Clark Preserve.  Parking is available in the Preserve parking lot on Autumn Ridge Road (link to google maps).  We will work to remove Japanese barberry, an invasive shrub that negatively impacts soil chemistry and outcompetes our more-valuable native plant species.   Learn to identify barberry and best methods for controlling it on your property.  Help to maintain forest and watershed health at one of Pound Ridge’s most popular preserves.  For more information and to register, please contact Krista at landsteward@prlc.net or 914-205-3533.

PRLC is a member of the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (LHPRISM). LHPRISM is hosted and coordinated by the New York – New Jersey Trail Conference and funded through New York State Environmental Protection Fund. One of 8 regional partnerships, the LHPRISM serves parts of New York City, the Bronx and 6 counties on both sides of the Hudson River. Membership is open to individuals and organizations interested in invasive species issues and management. For more information, go to http://lhprism.org.

We also work with the New York Watershed Agricultural Council to obtain management advice and funding to support our work in Clark Preserve, part of the Croton River Watershed and therefore New York City’s drinking water supply.  For more information on maintaining healthy forest on your own property, visit their website mywoodlot.com.
