A CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!

Friends of Princeton Open Space (FOPOS) needs your help with Forest & Habitat Restoration Projects at the Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve . Pictured above: Oriental bittersweet ( Celastrus orbiculatus ), an invasive vine, girdles trees and shrubs as it climbs towards the forest canopy and/or edge. This invasive plant is able to hybridize with American bittersweet ( Celastrus scandens  ), further displacing the native species. It is easily identifiable in the dormant season due to its bright red berries along multiple leaf axils.
