Native Plant Restoration

Here are photos of the area in Cortlandt along the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail taken in July and November 2018 showing a tangled mess of vines and prickly bushes (Porcelain berry, Multiflora rose, Japanese barberry and others)


Work began in November 2018 to manage this highly invaded area. It is now barren, with some vines growing back.  It will be re-treated in the early fall 2019 and then planted with native trees and bushes. This area will be routinely monitored, invasive plants that re-emerge will be removed and then native species will be planted on May 2, 2020 during I Love My Park Day. 

Donations are requested to defray expenses.  $3,000 needed.
