Great Saw Mill River Cleanup 2016 - Farragut Avenue, Hastings

April 16, 2016

This was my first time volunteering at the Great Saw Mill River Cleanup, organized by Groundwork Hudson Valley.

Each year's cleanup event takes place at 8-10 different locations along the Saw Mill River. This year I chose the Farragut Avenue location in Hastings.

I learned how Oriental bittersweet and porcelainberry vines threaten local trees by depriving them of sunlight and nutrients, and in some cases even strangling them to death. I helped clear said vines from jeopardizing about 30 trees along the Farragut Ave portion of the river.
