Mile-a-Minute Vine

IT’S MILE-A-MINUTE SEASON!

The dreaded mile-a-minute vine is making its mark on Long Island as never before.  Known for its rapid growth (up to six inches in a day, or up to 25 feet in a season!), this invasive pest, if left to its own devices, can take over a field or woodland, outcompeting desirable native vegetation.  We have scheduled a series of events for volunteers to pull mile-a-minute at a preserve in Old Brookville or Upper Brookville this year.

Please join North Shore Land Alliance at one or more of the following events!:

Thursday June 27thth @ 9:30am

Thursday July 11th @ 6:00pm

Saturday July 13th @ 9:30am

Sunday July 28th @9:30am 

Additional times may be arranged for groups.  This is a wonderful opportunity for those looking to fulfill community service requirements!

SUPPLIES AND SNACKS WILL BE PROVIDED.

TO REGISTER AND FOR DIRECTIONS PLEASE CONTACT THE NORTH SHORE LAND ALLIANCE AT (516) 626-0908 or gsantang@syr.edu  THANK YOU!!
