Arthur Ross Nursery

Today high-school students from Mosholu Preservation Corporation learned about integrated pest management at the Arthur Ross Nursery in the North Bronx, and removed weeds. This plant nursery supplies New York City with flowers, bushes and trees. They do not use pesticides, but bring beneficial insects and sometimes volunteers to keep unwanted plants out. On other days these students work with the Bronx River Alliance conservation crew, or attend interactive classes by New York Trees to learn tree identification and pruning.
