2016 Curly Leaf Update
A small group of (4) people turned out to harvest Curly leaf near Grainger’s Beach area.
This spot has become an annual destination and some improvement has been seen over the last few years.
The first year around 500 plants were harvested, last year the number was about half of that.
This year the number remained about the same as the previous year so we can only hope we are keeping it from spreading and slowly reducing the numbers.
In addition, around 70 Curly leaf plants had been removed at (2) locations in Legoy’s Bay that had been found by Nancy Girling. This area as well as near Grass Island are areas to keep an eye on and return as needed.
Thanks to Emery Dergosits, Nancy Girling and Jim & Kathleen Frederick for participating this year.
