Mile-a-Minute vine detected in Sullivan County

Mile-a-Minute vine was detected in Cochecton, Sullivan County . This is the first known instance of this priority early detection species in the Catskills region. Residents of the area are being asked to be particularly careful when moving plants and soil around and to keep your eyes open for this invasive species (even in winter, old vegetation can still be visible). CRISP (the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership) is organizing an action plan for this species and occurrence.
