Help Pull Invasive Plants on Off-Limits Prall’s Island

April 8, 2011 at 5:07 PM Leave a comment

Our friend Alex needs your help!  The Northern area of Prall’s Island has been invaded by the exotic European Buckthorn. This island is critical breeding grounds for many species of herons in NYC, and is normally off-limits to the public. Help save the great native indigenous plant species located there by hand pulling the saplings of buckthorn before it grows into a bigger problem. You will learn about the local flora and fauna and history of the island.

For human visitors – it has no amenities.  It is a natural area with no facilities, so what you bring in is what you have.  Access will be by canoe or boat depending on numbers. The time period for this event is April 16,18-20, and 23rd. Contact Alexander Summers <hawkwolftree {AT} gmail((DOT))com> for more information.
