Project Title: Eradication of Invasive Plants at Cranberry Lake Campground, to be done under existing Adopt-A-Natural Resource Agreement with Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP)
Contact Person: Douglas Bernhard
625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233
Phone: (518) 402-9060
Project Location: Town of Clifton
Project Description: The Department is accepting comments through October 8, 2008 for work to be done under an Adopt a Natural Resource agreement (AANR 06-52-01) with the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program to treat and remove invasive plants from Cranberry Lake Campground.
The target invasive species is garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) that is well established at approximately 40 camp sites and social trails within Cranberry Lake Campground. The invasive percent cover is approximately 51-75% at many infestations throughout the facility. The treatments of target infestations will not require an APA General Wetland Permit. The proposed Best Management Practices (BMPs) will be a non-motorized, fine mist, hand placement of 1% to 3% solution of glyphosate (Round Up Pro) herbicide directly to first-year basal rosettes. The controls will be implemented in early October, 2008. The control sites will be re-inspected and monitored for efficacy within two weeks of the treatment date. During this follow-up inspection any residual, live plants may be retreated as necessary. Spray equipment to be utilized includes a one-gallon, pressurized hand-can and 32 ounce commercial spray bottle with adjustable nozzles. Herbicide solution will be pre-mixed and securely transported to the site. The late season, spot treatments will be implemented by fully Certified Commercial Pesticide Applicator, ID #C5863501. Photo-documentation will occur prior to control, during the treatment and during post-control monitoring. The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program will collaborate with and report to the Department during the treatment and monitoring phases.
Comments will be accepted until October 8, 2008.
