MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Enhancement work at the 35-acre Otter Creek Preserve in the Village of Mamaroneck is well under way and volunteers recently assisted staff with planting over 65 native trees and shrubs.

The Westchester Land Trust (WLT), which owns Otter Creek Preserve, launched the Habitat Enhancement Project earlier this year in an effort to improve the visitor experience and natural environment.

“There’s more than 70,000 people living within 3-miles of Otter Creek, and we are honored to care for this natural treasure for their benefit,” said Tate Bushell, WLT’s director of stewardship.

The planting was just the latest effort in the organization’s year-long Habitat Enhancement Project. In May, WLT’s staff and volunteers removed invasive plant species outcompeting and harming native plants, cleared the entrances along Taylor’s Lane and South Barry Place to make them more passable, and installed new preserve signs. Earlier this month, WLT staff installed Interpretative Signage educating visitors to the Otter Creek about the marsh and woodland habitats.

WLT’s Enhancement Project is funded in large part by a grant from the Westchester Community Foundation. To learn more, visit westchesterlandtrust.org .
