Stilt Grass Removal, Lost Valley, Saturday, September 16–Volunteer Opportunity

September 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

An alien is invading Lost Valley!  This alien has the power to smother Lost Valley’s spectacular wildflower welcome to spring!  Japanese Stilt Grass is a nonnative invasive plant which can form an impenetrable thatch over areas, thus preventing spring flowers from emerging.  

BNRP is planning a Public Service/Citizen’s Science project to remove Stiltgrass, Microstegia vimineum at  Lost Valley on September 16, 2017.  That date was chosen as Stiltgrass sets seed late September or early October.  If removed before the up to 1000 seeds/plant form, spread can be curtailed.  It is loosely rooted and easily pulled out.  Thus, if you care about wildflowers, would like a little exercise and fresh air, and want to participate in this volunteer project, consider  marking your calendar now.  

We will have an update/reminder later this summer .   So that the organizer can get a better idea of how many volunteers will be there, please fill out the registration form below.

I would like to volunteer for this event.
