Some good news on invasives

_DSC8197

Part of our ISF assignment this year was to survey the Thielke Arboretum in Glen Rock for invasives. Some parts of the preserve are almost pristine native wetland forest. This majestic red maple is surrounded by native shrubs and ferns.

This report details the work the Invasives Strike force and Lower Hudson Prism have done over the past five years to find and remove invasive plants along hundreds of miles of hiking trails in our area. If you would like to volunteer to learn about, survey, and remove invasives during the coming growing season, contact Dr. Linda Rohlehder through the NY-NJ Trail Conference website.

In 2014, we surveyed this beautiful forest in Wawayanda State Park.
