The Time and the Valleys Museum will host a virtual program on Japanese Knotweed, the invasive plant that has been taking over Catskill streambanks, set for Friday, September 23rd.
This program will be led by Haley Springston, Watershed Planning Coordinator at the Rondout Neversink Stream Management Program, who will look at how Japanese Knotweed is able to grow so quickly, and what can be done to help fight the spread. The program will also include an update on the latest treatment efforts being carried out by the Stream Program along Chestnut Creek and the upper Rondout Creek. Springston will review the history of the spread of Japanese Knotweed, explain how it can be quickly identified, discuss recommended management options and present findings from the recent walkover survey.
This program will begin at 2 pm. Admission to the program is free for Museum members and $5 for non-members. Registration is required and can be completed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with Japanese knotweed Zoom Link Request in the subject line, or by calling (845) 985-7700. For more information visit the Time and the Valleys Museum website.
