Invasive Plant Walk

Sunday, AugĀ 19, 2012, 11 AM

Invasive plants can overtake our gardens, encroach on our yards, and diminish biological diversity in our woodlands. Some plants are more aggressive than others, and “new” invasives are coming soon.

The Kent Conservation Advisory Committee is sponsoring an informal walk and talk about these troublesome plants. On the walk you’ll learn to spot them in your own yard and find out the best strategies for control. Be a first responder for the newest arrivals and learn about IPANE‘s regional effort to control them.

This is a gentle one-mile walk in the Nimham Mountain State Forest and the Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park. Meet in the DEC parking area on Nichols Street. Bring water, lunch and sunscreen. Space is limited, so please reserve your spot by calling Beth at 228-5635. If weather forces us to cancel or postpone the hike, we’ll let everyone who subscribes to our hikes list know by email and post the news on our home page.
