NYBG EcoFlora Update, March 2020

The March EcoQuest Challenge is FIND MORE LESSER CELANDINE

Lesser Celandine (Ficaria verna) is an invasive plant spreading rapidly throughout southeastern New York, including New York City. It invades pristine natural areas and forms a monoculture that crowds out native species such as Violets (Viola spp.) and Carolina Spring-Beauty (Claytonia caroliniana). Your observations will help us document the extent and density of Lesser Celandine in New York City. Get more information on Lesser Celandine here and follow the progress on the Lesser Celandine Project Page

If you are in the Hudson Valley, your Lesser Celandine observations will contribute to the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management March EcoQuest
