Say Thank You for supporting a cleaner environment at R.C. Murphy Park


This petition is a Thank You for supporting a cleaner environment at R.C. Murphy County Park (Manorville NY). You've enabled the physical removal of Mile-a-Minute, and for improving public access. We all hope for your continued support.

Mile-A-Minute is an extremely invasive non-native vine recently found along the Paumanok Path, and within a nearby wildland urban interface: a strange juxtaposition of bird calls and human sounds, native plant communities and lawns, invasive species, wildfires, boundaries, and deadly ticks.

The project required NYSDEC Wetland permits, and additional support from Suffolk County, Cornell Cooperative Extension, private homeowners, the LI Greenbelt Trail Conference Monday Crew, and Quality Parks Master Naturalists. For more information, visit our timeline:

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
