collecting native plants in NYC
I recently got the notion of going to some fresh water lakes, ponds and streams close to NYC to see if I can collect samples of native aquatic plants. Have anyone done this? And would any one like to do this at some point in August? If people are interested perhaps we can go to our closest body of water and collect samples and then meet up to exchange plants and information. I have gone to parts of the pond in Prospect Parks and saw various mosses and ludwigia sp. Currently I am looking for Myriophyllum tenellum.
