Invasive Species Control Work Day

Tuesday, August 25, 2015 - 4:00pm - Wednesday, August 26, 2015 - 5:45pm
Goodwin Forest Conservation Education Center
23 Potter Road
Hampton, Connecticut 06247
Event Type: 
All are welcome
Event Description: 

Aliens are invading! Invasive plants are a conservation concern because they take over the landscape and choke out our native plants, which also leads to loss of habitat for wildlife.  Here at the Goodwin Conservation Center, as a demonstration forest, we want to show landowners what steps to take to properly control Invasive plant species.

We will go out into the forest to work to control the invasives at Goodwin.  Learn different methods of removal so you can take to your own backyard with confidence!
