Marshlands Conservancy Shows Life In The Water

RYE, N.Y. -- The Marshlands Conservancy is named for its saltwater marshes but has a number of other natural attractions, including freshwater streams and ponds that are their own little worlds populated with creatures not often seen elsewhere.The conservancy will be holding a nature walk Sunday at 2 p.m. to observe aquatic life along its freshwater streams and inside its ponds. It will begin at a natural spring and move downstream toward the marshlands where the stream empties into the Long Island Sound with a pit stop at a nearby pond.The walk will be led by naturalist Chris Mignone and will include plenty of hands-on interaction with the environment, including taking water samples and classifying organisms discovered in the water."People will see a stream is not just lying water," said Mignone. "It's a natural habitat that has a lot going on inside of it."The nature walk is free. Participants are advised to wear long pants, closed-toe shoes and to apply bug-repellant if so desired.

The Marshlands conservancy is located at 220 Boston Post Rd. For more information, contact the conservancy at (914) 835-4466.().
