In recognition of New York’s Invasive Species Awareness Week (July 8-14), I have prepared a compilation about how to identify (including color photographs and brief ID tips) a number of species of invasive plants at each of two local preserves:
- Fox Preserve (located in Town of Colonie) – view the compilation
- Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve (located in Town of Clifton Park) – view the compilation
Each compilation includes:
- list of observed species (including information describing flowers, leaves, and other plant characteristics as well as when each blooms and where each can be found at that preserve)
- color photographs and brief ID tips
The compilation for Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve also includes a list of links to other websites with information on how to control or eradicate each listed species.
Hope you find these compilations helpful.
Also, please join me this week for a walk to identify invasive species at (1) Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve (6pm on July 12) and (2) Fox Preserve (9am on July 13) – more info regarding each walk is available on my Events page. I hope you’ll join me!
