Invasive Species
What are they & how do we cope?

Speaker: Luke Gervase 

Luke will be talking about common and unique invasive species throughout Long Island and the northeast region of the United States. Invasive species are plants, animals, pathogens, or fungi that are non-native to an area and impact the environment, economy, or human health. Luke is a Project Ecologist with GEI Consultants. GEI is a consulting engineering, environmental, and ecological firm that delivers value by providing professional services to improve our world’s environment.

Luke Gervase grew up on Long Island and went to SUNY ESF to earn his BS in aquatics and fisheries science with a marine ecology minor and to SUNY Oneonta to earn his MS in Lake Management. He has worked throughout the northeast and has spent time as an aquatic biologist in the private sector, an inventory arborist surveying for Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis), and as a field projects and outreach coordinator with the Long Island Invasive Species Management Area (LIISMA). Luke is currently a project ecologist with GEI Consultants and works on a variety of projects including ecological assessments, invasive species removals, report writing, and general consulting.​

Calendars will be available at the meeting. 

Meetings take place at Quogue Wildlife Refuge, 3 Old Country Rd., Quogue.
