Milfoil Fights Back

Updated: Aug 19, 2020

Rome Trout Brook

Rome Trout Brook has a lot of plants--both native and invasive! This area saw a sudden increase of invasive variable milfoil in 2017. We laid several benthic barriers over large patches beginning at the mouth of the stream and pushing upstream.

Great Meadow Stream

This season, New England Milfoil spent 10 weeks here. Several of the large patches throughout the stream have been removed by New England Milfoil while the our crew has focused on the mouth of the stream.

Robbins Mill Stream

Robbins Mill Stream has been addressed annually since 2012. An eager group of volunteers from Hoyt Island have expressed interest in doing more than adopting their shoreline. Lea Ramirez of Hoyt Island and our Milfoil Remediation Manager are developing a program to have Hoyt Island residents assist in removal efforts as well as data collection.
