Bear with me please.  It's been a hectic summer and I'm 
behind in where I'd like to be with posts here on the weBlog.

Do you have native plant species you're looking to share or pass along?

The Ganondagan State Historic Site is working towards removing invasive, non-native plant species from the park and replacing them with native plants that are significant to the Seneca culture. This will both promote biodiversity and help to keep invasive plants from coming back. You can help by donation native plant, which allows us to keep the project going on our limited budget!

If you have questions or are interested in donating plants to aid in our Invasive Species Project, you can email Emma Kubinski at
Plants can be dropped off at the Visitor's Center. Park hours- Tuesday-Sunday, 9-5 
Desirable Native Plant Species:  If you have questions, you can email us at
