The Monroe County Soil & Water Conservation District is looking for morning volunteers to help remove
invasive species along Irondequoit Creek at Legion Eyer Park in the Town of East Rochester!
All along the streambank the invasive vine, Oriental Bittersweet, is present and as part of a larger park
enhancement project, the District will be cutting and pulling the vine from the bank. Volunteers will be
needed to help cut, pull, and bag the vine.
This is the perfect opportunity for local scout groups, school clubs, residents, and more to come out and
learn about streambank erosion, buffers, Irondequoit Creek, water quality, and gain overall knowledge of
your local natural resources.
Removal should only take a few hours and will preferably be done between the hours of 9:00 am and
12:00 pm. Tentatively, we are looking at a morning the week of June 13th or June 27th, 2022.
Interested individuals should email JacobKearney@monroecounty.gov or
JamesSroka@monroecounty.gov with their availability.
