Invasive Plant Walk & Talk

August 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Non-native, invasive plants and animals are one of the leading threats to native biodiversity around the world. They can also negatively affect property values, agricultural productivity, fisheries, outdoor recreation, and ecosystem function, and are estimated to cost the U.S. $120 billion in economic damages and control each year. There are now more than 100 non-native species of plants that have become established and invasive in Connecticut! Can you identify them all? Come to Great Hollow on August 11th to learn how to identify many of these plants, hear about how and when they were introduced to our region, and find out what you can do to be a responsible property owner. Please email John Foley to register. A suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members is appreciated for this event.
