Earth Day Work Days!

DUE TO THE WEATHER FORECAST-the volunteer day on Friday 4/20 has been postponed. Please check back here for a new date to be announced shortly.

PHRAG FIGHT! Join us  as we continue our work to safeguard the unique natural restoration that is underway at West Brook in Great River, NY. The work will take place at the site of the former West Brook Pond, which was a man-made pond until 2019, when its dam (built 120 years ago) failed and the water drained away.

With the pond gone, the brook has found its former channel and an amazing natural restoration has taken hold along its banks – seeds long dormant under the pond have sprouted into a freshwater meadow dominated by native plants!

But the restoration is threatened by incursion from the invasive common reed, phragmites. Over the past five growing seasons, Seatuck staff and volunteers have fought to keep the phrag at bay. We’re winning, but the fight’s not over yet!
