Wintercreeper Control Assistance Offered by MC-IRIS
Wintercreeper vines cut from trees.
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. Six neighborhoods applied for assistance, and two were chosen - Arden Place and SoMax. Learn more about this outreach program and how to control this menace on your land.
