2010/11 Vine-Cutting Season

Upcoming Dates:
Saturday, November 20th at Lawrence Street!
Sunday, December 12th at Farragut Avenue.

November’s vine-cutting will be held this Saturday, November 20th, NOT Sunday November 21st as was previously the plan. Additionally, the vine-cutting will be held at a NEW LOCATION! We will be expanding the project to a new site along the South County Trailway at Lawrence Street in Ardsley/Dobbs Ferry. The time will remain the same, from 9:30am-12:30pm.

The invasive vines are a watershed-wide threat and we are going to try to expand our reach when possible. There will be a simultaneous clean-up going at Lawrence and near-by sites with volunteer river clean-up crews from the Suburbia Roller Derby and Hillside Nature Guides, so it should be a fun day to come out!

    My son Misha Koechlin and I would like to help.
    We call the SawMill River Pkw the WFP “Witches and Fantom (with an F) Parkway”.
    Misha is interested in joining your group for his Community Service program at school this year. We are both interested in raising funds for the project etc..

    Vine-Cutting: do we know the trees are covered with poison ivy and other vines? If so which ones. How to we prevent poison ivy allergy for those of us with allergies.
    Thank you

    Hi Catherine,

    So glad to hear that you and your son are interested in helping out! Hope you can make it to our first vine-cutting, Saturday, October 30th. If not, there are more to come!

    One of the first things we go over in our training at all vine-cuttings is what poison ivy looks like so you can avoid getting anywhere near it! Please let me know if you have any questions!
