ALERT: WILD PARSNIP REMOVAL NEEDED – NOW!
The wild parsnip is in bloom and next week it will be too late as it goes to seed, but one more effort to clear a couple of spots in town. Meet at the bottom of Happy Hollow Road around 6 pm on Thursday, July 24. Efforts will be concentrated on Bridge Street in the Lower Village and out toward the turn-around near Gillette Pond; if there is time, the bank near the Jubilee Farm barn and vegetable fields in Huntington Center. The town truck will be parked outside the garage on Thursday evening until around 9:09 pm, so if you do some independent parsnip pulling, feel free to bring down the plants and put them on the truck to go to CSWD composting facility.

Wear long sleeves and pants, boots or closed-toes shoes and bring work gloves. Hope to see you there!

Wild parsnip produces sap that can cause second-degree burns, rashes and blisters to human skin. It is extremely toxic to cattle, horses and sheep. And it is spreading around Vermont roadsides at an alarming rate.  Click here for a brochure on how to identify and safely eliminate wild parsnip from your property.
