Pine Bush Commission Update

{Author}

The State Legislature has approved a $2 million grant to the Commission from the NYS Environmental Protection Fund for 2007/2008, up from last year’s $1.5 million. The additional $500,000 is earmarked for development at the Discovery Center.

Scientific research continues in the Preserve, including population & habitat monitoring of the Karner Blues and the Frosted Elfin Butterflies; Whip-Poor-Will monitoring; Reptile & Amphibian surveys; impacts of prescribed burning on the Deer Tick density; impacts of Preserve management on inland barrens; Buckmoth abundance; Black Locust removal and habitat restoration.

Volunteers are invited to join in making winter preparations in the Pine Bush on Friday, November 2 (456-0655 x1250).
