Current Projects

The Mile-a-Minute Project of the Hudson Valley

The Mile-a-Minute Project of the Hudson Valley, a collaborative effort between numerous state and non-profit organizations, was established in 2005 to provide outreach, education, and control for the Mile-a-Minute vine (Persicaria perfoliata L., formerly Polygonum perfoliatum L.) to help prevent its spread.

NY-NJ Trail Conference Invasives Strike Force

The NY/NJ Trail Conference has assembled an Invasives Strike Force. Trained volunteers dedicated to surveying, monitoring, and eradicating invasive plants along hiking trails in southern New York and adjoining New Jersey have covered over 630 miles of trail as of the end of 2013. There is always a need for more volunteers to assist in the identification and eradication effort.
