Saturday Morning Nov. 9, 2019 @ 8:30 am
Leader: Byron Young
Smith Point Park is at the southern end of the William Floyd Parkway. We will
meet on the west side of the large parking lot closest to the FINS tower.
There are usually a great many small birds hanging out by the basketball courts, birds should still be migrating as we look for both land birds and check out the ocean for any pelagic birds and winter ducks. Over 200 species have been seen here, so maybe we could have a good day. In addition to a large collection of gulls in the parking lot, which we will check for Lesser Black-backed Gulls, the parking lot features its own herd of deer. Although frowned on by the NPS, if you would like to bring them a left over Halloween pumpkin, they would surely enjoy it.

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.
