Eyres, a biology graduate student at SUNY Oneonta, gets a magnified
look at a water chestnut specimen, as Sen. James L. Seward, third
from left, and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) commit $10,000 in
funding for mitigating the nonnative plant’s growth in an Otsego
County wetlands area. From left, standing, are Steven J. DeCarlo,
NYPA senior vice president, Transmission; Senator Seward; Matt
Albright, assistant to the director of the SUNY Oneonta Biological
Field Station (BFS), which is conducting the research; and Dr.
Willard N. Harman, BFS director. The BFS received two ceremonial
checks, each for $5,000, on Sept. 5.
