Event Description: 

This program is twice the fun! Topography is the shape of the land. During this talk we will take a look at topographic maps of the area and learn how to read them. We will also take a short walk to compare what we see on the map to what we see in nature.

Phragmites is an invasive plant in the state of Connecticut. Learn about this plant and what the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has done to decrease the growth of the plant. 

Troy Schinkel is an earth and environmental science educator at Central Connecticut State University and is a current member of Goodwin’s Master Naturalist Program.
