Garden Club sponsors student
The Philipstown Garden Club’s summer intern, Anne Gundeck, spent two months doing field work at the Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary. She was assigned to control of phragmite, the invasive reed that is managed by smothering the plants with geotextile.
Gundeck also worked on seining (a fish census), identifying native plant and bird species, guiding canoe trips, and greeting and providing information to visitors.
A 2017 graduate of Poughkeepsie Day School, Gundeck will attend Bates College. The Garden Club sponsors interns each summer in partnership with environmental, horticultural and conservation organizations. See pgc1914.com.
