Wintercreeper Control Assistance Offered by MC-IRIS
Wintercreeper climbing a tree.
Many of Bloomington’s best-loved natural areas are under attack, and the culprit may be lurking in your yard. MC-IRIS is reaching out to the neighborhoods around Dunn's Woods and Latimer Woods to teach landowners why purple wintercreeper is a problem, and how to control it. Details on the landowner assistance program and the demonstration work days at Dunn's Woods (on February 8) and Latimer Woods (on March 8) are here - and applications are due December 15.
