Invasive Plants: Identification, Documentation, and Control

October 16, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - October 17, 2015 @ 4:00 pm


What’s all the fuss? Botanists, ecologists, horticulturists, and conservation professionals are united in their concern about invasive plants, but there is still some confusion about what they are and what to do about them. In this class, you will learn about the basic ecological problems created by these aggressive species and the complicated issues involved in controlling them. You will learn to identify some of New England’s most common invasive species through images, specimens, and short local field visits. Bring a bag lunch and a hand lens; wear water- proof shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

Friday, October 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.; Saturday, October 17, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
