Invasive Species Teach-In

  • Wilber Park Wilber Park Drive Oneonta, NY, 13820 United States (map)

Celebrate New York State's fifth Invasive Species Awareness Week with an Invasive Species Teach-In at the Wilber Park upper pavilion in Oneonta between 11am and 3pm. Local botanist Donna Vogler and her team from SUNY Oneonta will share their expertise about invasive plants with displays, activities for kids and adults, and a plant identification booth. See examples of common invasive plants, discover how to report new infestations, and learn what is being done to control them. You may bring suspicious plants or weeds for identification—bring either a good cell phone photo or bring the plant sealed in a gallon Ziploc bag. Unknown insects may also be dropped off for later identification. Insects must be sealed in a bag and frozen overnight, i.e., they must be dead). This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by OCCA, the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP), and the City of Oneonta.
