Sharp-Eyed Volunteers Needed...
to spot aquatic invaders in the Hudson Valley!
Hydrilla, or water thyme, arrived in the U.S. in the 1950s as an aquarium plant. Soon it was infesting freshwater lakes, ponds, canals and rivers in the South, and now it’s been spotted in the Croton River.
One of the world’s most invasive plants, hydrilla blocks sunlight, decreases oxygen levels and chokes out native plants by forming thick, dense mats. It destroys waterfowl feeding areas and fish spawning sites. It grows up to an inch a day!
Immediate intervention can eradicate hydrilla’s threat. Alert volunteers are needed to identify and report new patches of hydrilla.
Please join the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management for a hydrilla identification workshop on Thursday, September 11, 10 AM - 2:00 PM, at Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining, NY.
Instructors Chris Doyle and Scott Kishbaugh will teach partici-pants to distinguish hydrilla from benign lookalikes. The session is free.
Please register by calling (201) 512-9348 or emailing Dr. Linda Rohleder at email@example.com

Sean Maiorano, former Teatown camper, CIT and volunteer, developed an affinity for photography when he began taking underwater photos while scuba diving. Some of Sean’s favorite subject matter comes from seeing things where others don’t; often shooting at night with long exposures or using a macro lens allows him to create unique pieces. In the future Sean hopes to continue to learn more about the art of photography and further his interest in underwater photography.CONTINUE READING
