Dane Invasives Removal, Midtown Rd/Saracen Way
November 26 @ 9:00 am
This IATA property south of Midtown Rd in the Town of Verona contains a dry kettle filled on its north side by Midtown Rd. It is sometimes called Felton (after the former owner). There’s no trail here yet, but our chapter has been doing active management for more than five years at this site. Most of those efforts have been devoted to garlic mustard control and removal of invasive brush. If temperatures are above freezing, we’ll not only attack the woody foes, but spray garlic mustard. There are places at this site where we do not apply herbicide in spring lest we also kill trilliums, a protected spring woodland flower found only rarely on IATA lands in the county. Trained and properly trained chain sawyers are welcome, as well as those preferring hand work or willing to don a backpack sprayer (weather permitting).
