Filmed over seven years, The Marion Lake Story tells the compelling story of how a community on the east end of Long Island came together to clear their lake of the highly invasive phragmites reed. They educated themselves, raised money, hired wetlands biologist Steve Marino to plan the eradication, and the result is a bio-diverse habitat for native birds, plants and rare turtles.
Running time is 28 min. Stay for an informal, brief discussion afterwards with local people working on invasive species in Croton and elsewhere in northern Westchester.
