Seven hearty souls from Hypertherm came back to UVLTâ€™s â€œGatewayâ€ property in Norwich to check out a new fitness craze sweeping though the Upper Valley! Itâ€™s called â€œInvasives cross-trainingâ€ .
These volunteers spent 8 hours hiking up and down a steep hill (interval training) and plowing through shin deep mud (endurance training) to pull out and cut down non-native invasive trees and shrubs such as buckthorn, honeysuckle, and barberry (resistance training). Who needs a gym membership!?
To learn more about why these plants are bad, check out this recent post about invasive species removal.
