You are invited to join us on Saturday, October 15, 2016 (rain date Saturday, October 22nd) from 9:30 AM
– 12 noon, for our seasonal Weed Warrior Day stewardship project. This time, we will be targeting two species: Porcelainberry and Privet. Porcelainberry is a highly invasive vine from
Asia that looks very much like our native grape vine. Privet is a commonly planted invasive shrub
that invades our woodlands and believe it or not, most nurseries sell it and
most landscapers plant it.
Learn to ID
these plants from their first leaves as a seedling, to its full grown
appearance. In addition, our expert
ecologist from Rutgers, volunteer Jean Epiphan, will be on hand to share her
wisdom about these and other invasive plants that may be homesteading on your
own property, such as: Japanese
honeysuckle, Asiatic bittersweet, wisteria, English ivy, myrtle, amur
honeysuckle and others.
No experience is
necessary. We will train you onsite to
help restore a healthy balance to our environment. Wear boots, long pants, and long
sleeves. Bring gloves, kneelers,
pruners, and drinking water. We will
have extras on site if you don't have them.
It's a beautiful time
of the year! Bring your family and
friends, socialize, enjoy nature, care for this earth, invest in the land for
the next generation, and enhance the beauty of this peaceful place, right near
downtown Glen Rock.
We appreciate your interest in helping to
maintain and restore this vital freshwater wetlands and forest habitat. See you at the Arb!
