Important 2017 Dates:

Sunday June 18, 8:00 to 11:00am
Dog-strangling Vine – Search and Removal

The task is to locate and flag plants. Individual plants or small groups can be removed by hand. Larger patches will be targeted for later treatment. Meet at the wooden gate to the meadow along Thickson Road. Bring drinking water and snacks. A very sharp small round-mouthed shovel is best for uprooting stray plants. Wear long pants that can be tucked into socks, and long sleeves. (The grass may be very wet early because of heavy dew.) Bring insect repellent to spray your shoes, sleeves and pant legs. The critical job is finding and flagging stray plants, so don’t feel you can’t help if you’re not up to digging.
