Eastern Prickly Pear at Shore Parkway

The ecologist we are working with on our Shore Parkway restoration project has found an Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus (Optunia humifusa) on site! This species is the only native cactus found in the Northeastern states. We are working with the NYC Parks Department to remove invasive species and restore the native ecology of the shoreline.
