About the event

The ArMI Bittersweet Brigade will meet twice a month for Winter Control of Woody Invasives as weather permits. Our first outing successfully cut very large vines growing near the swampy area at McClennen.

Bittersweet is our  prime target, but other woody invasives will be fair game, depending on the site. McClennen for example has a lot of multiflora rose in addition to bittersweet, so we will clip back, bag berries, (and perhaps pop out the root crown where site conditions allow). Other possible locations include the Ed Burns Arena and Crusher Woodlands.

Please RSVP. - to this email  or armi@communication-exchange.com
