Frank Melville Seed Planting

August 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.

We will head to the trails at Frank Melville to pull stilt grass and plant native seed in its place. We’ll be doing an experiment in which we will try out our seed bombs in one area and plant seed by hand in an adjacent area to see which technique is more effective. This small, privately owned park relies on the extra hands of volunteers to help mitigate the unwanted invasive plants taking over the wooded areas.  We will be meeting in the parking lot of the Bates House in East Setauket.

 

WHAT TO BRING/FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Long clothing that might get a little dirty (long sleeves/long pants)
  • Sneakers with high socks (ticks will be a concern- we will be going off trail!)
  • Water bottle
