Invasive Plants Program and Workday with Capital Mohawk PRISM

Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Naturalist Series

Learn how to identify, report, and remove invasive species right here in Troy! The native plants of one the largest open spaces in Troy need our help by cutting bittersweet vines and pulling other invasives. We will be led by Spencer Barrett, Terrestrial Invasive Species Coordinator with Capital-Mohawk PRISM.. Wear old clothes, work gloves, and boots or shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Bring lopper/clippers for cutting vines if you have them.

Meet at the parking lot of the Staalesen Preserve on Wynantskill Way in Troy.

Questions? Contact Joe Durkin at No charge.
