Rare Species and Natural Communities of Fishers Island
August 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A virtual illustrated talk by Matthew Schlesinger, Chief Zoologist, New York Natural Heritage Program (NYNHP).
NYNHP is working with the Henry L. Ferguson Museum to conduct a two-year biodiversity survey of the Museum’s Land Trust properties. Building on the island’s legacy of natural history work and more recent biodiversity observations, NYNHP scientists are conducting focused surveys for rare plants, insects, amphibians, reptiles, bats, and other species. They are also mapping the Land Trust’s ecosystems.
