Description

"The Sands Point Preserve is has many different habitat types – but the native plant species within each habitat are threatened by invasive species that can shade out and compete for nutrients. Across Long Island, non-native, invasive species cause significant problems, and careful management is of utmost importance. On this walk, we’ll learn to identify and distinguish between invasive and non-invasive species so that you can begin to manage the plant life around you. Learn best practices for early detection and fast removal! Participants will take home a reference guide and a Citizen Science application to report invasive species data to benefit the environment."
