A Close-up of an Invasive Plant Species—Willow 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.
