Calling all Hands! Invasive Species Pull Event at CIC

Posted on: September 2nd, 2016 by Leslie_Zucker

Please join us for an Inva­sive Species Pull Event at the Catskill Inter­pre­tive Cen­ter in Mt. Trem­per on Sat­ur­day, Sep­tem­ber 10 from 10:00AM‑2:00PM. The event is free and open to the pub­lic, but reg­is­tra­tion is required. Lunch is includ­ed. Reg­is­ter now online!

The pro­gram includes remov­ing as much inva­sive plant mate­r­i­al as pos­si­ble, an inva­sive species plant walk led by Ulster Coun­ty Mas­ter Gar­den­ers, and an ori­en­ta­tion on how to rec­og­nize inva­sive plants.

The Catskill Streams Buffer Ini­tia­tive (CSBI) will replant the area this fall with native Catskill trees and shrubs that ben­e­fit habi­tat and water qual­i­ty. An edu­ca­tion­al trail will be built through the buffer. For more infor­ma­tion on how to restore stream buffers in the Ashokan Water­shed with CSBI assis­tance, call Bob­by Tay­lor at (845) 688‑3047, Ext. 6.
