During the month of October we will focus on removal of non-indigenous plant species within our Tibbetts wetlands worksite, adjacent to Hester & Piero's Mill Pond. Species that we will be removing include Norway maple, Siebold viburnum, bush honeysuckle, English ivy and porcelainberry. These plants threaten the biodiversity and stability of the wetland and forest that make up this section of the park. Long pants and closed toed shoes, preferably boots, are required.
During the month of November we will focus on removal of non-indigenous plant species within our Floodplain Forest worksite, along the Putnam Greenway. This section of forest absorbs and filters water during storms along Tibbetts Brook and provides a location for silt deposition and a buffer for flooding. Species that we will be removing include multiflora rose, Siebold viburnum, bush honeysuckle, privet and porcelainberry. Long pants and closed toed shoes, preferably boots, are required.
Tickets for Forest Fridays at Van Cortlandt Park can be booked here.
