LaPlatte Rivermarsh Trail Closures

The Vermont Chapter is beginning an extensive invasive plant control project at our LaPlatte River Marsh Natural Area to remove the woody invasives


August 26, 2013

The Vermont Chapter is beginning an extensive invasive plant control project at our LaPlatte River Marsh Natural Area to remove the woody invasives on about 40 acres in the northwest portions of the property, near the trail and town recreation path. 

Work will begin September 2nd and continue for approximately 3 weeks, depending on the weather.  During that time, access to portions of the trail and preserve may be restricted at times for safety reasons. 

This is a cooperative project between The Nature Conservancy and Green Mountain Power (who will be working in partnership with us to control invasives in the power line right of way that crosses our property).  Work will consist of a combination of brush hogging, hand cutting/pulling and herbicide application. 

If you have plans to visit during this time period, please check in with Critical Lands Manager, Lynn McNamara, ahead of time at lmcnamara@tnc.org or 802-229-4425 x116
