Teatown Lake – Wetland Restoration Project
August 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am
Join fellow Cornell alumni to learn about conservation and help with a small wetland restoration project!
This wetland is part of a multi-year restoration project to remove wisteria and invasive vines to make space for native trees and shrubs. Working in this area will help create a functional ecosystem that helps filter water and provides resources for a wide variety of amphibians, insects and birds. Cutting invasive vines helps save the remaining living trees which are easily girdled by the vines. Learn more about Teatown, their mission and other exciting projects planned. Go on guided walkthrough of some of their trails and the famous Raptor Loop (birds of prey), where many of their animal ambassadors reside!
Teatown Lake Reservation is an education center and membership organization located on a 1,000-acre nature preserve in the Lower Hudson Valley. Their mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.
