Do you know why managing invasive plant species is so important? Please join Dave Gumbart, director of land management for the CT chapter of The Nature Conservancy, as he teaches us to identify invasives such as Japanese stiltgrass, barberry, bittersweet, and more! We will learn what has been done locally to manage these invasives, and how we can manage and remove them from our own backyards, creating a healthier habitat for birds and other wildlife. We will first meet at the Lyme Library then make our way to a restoration site in East Haddam!
This free event is part of a Bird Workshop Series offered by the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project—an initiative launched by Audubon Connecticut, in partnership with the Town of Lyme and the Lyme Land Trust, the Eightmile River Wild and Scenic Coordinating Committee, The Nature Conservancy, and other local land trusts, and municipalities. For a schedule of other events offered by the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project.
Space is limited. Please fill out this RSVP form if you plan to attend this workshop.
