Aquatic Invasive Animals in Teatown Lake
July 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Northern Snakehead. Chinese Mystery Snail. Bloody Red Shrimp. What do these three species have in common? These are just a few of the many invasive fish and invertebrates that have invaded the Lower Hudson region or could be on their way here. Come discover how to identify these aquatic invasive animals and learn about their diets, adaptations, and harmful effects on our natural ecosystems. After an indoor presentation we’ll make our way to Teatown Lake to scoop for aquatic animals.
