Invasive Species of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex, Finger Lakes Region, NY
March 4, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
National Invasive Species Awareness Week (NISAW) 2022 is February 28, 2022 – March 4, 2022, and we invite you to join us for a virtual presentation to learn about some of the invasive species that can be found within the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. Invasive species are defined as non-native plants, animals, pathogens, and microorganisms that can be found on land or in water. Once they become established in areas outside their normal habitat range, they are capable of causing severe damage, including harming the economy, the environment, or human health. NISAW is a nationwide event to raise awareness about invasive species, the threat they pose, and what can be done to prevent their spread. The management of invasive species is an ongoing effort at both Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge, as well as at the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area. Restoring the wetlands, forest, and grassland habitats are so important throughout the Complex to provide native food sources, shelter, and habitat for the migratory and breeding birds that use the Montezuma Wetlands Complex throughout the year.
