Results from Past Seasons

 

Thanks to all the hard-working volunteers that helped us survey 926 miles of trail for invasives in four years!

That's just under 70% of the 1340 miles of trail in the lower Hudson Valley New York and northern New Jersey areas that we began with in 2011. (Of course, now there are even more trails to survey!).
