Join us for a volunteer phrag pull at West Brook!

The only dam on West Brook, a major tributary of the Connetquot River, failed in 2019 and allowed the artificial pond behind it to drain. For the first time in over 100 years, the brook could once again flow naturally from its headwaters in Bayard Cutting Arboretum State Park down to the tidal reaches of the Great South Bay. It is now one of only a few free-flowing streams on Long Island. It has great ecological potential as a place where migratory fish can return and other native riverine species can once again find a home. But the future of the stream is uncertain – New York State Parks is still deciding whether to repair the dam.

Join us on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2022, as we work to remove invasive species at West Brook and continue to improve stream habitat for diadromous fish. Please register to attend. You can also email [email protected] for more information.
