A Thorny Problem: Controlling Invasive Plants - Sponsored by NH TOA

Invasive plants continue to be a serious problem for landowners and natural resource managers. Join the Upper Valley Land Trust and several invasive plant specialists to learn how to effectively combat invasive vegetation. This field-based workshop will focus on identifying invasive plants, understanding their ecology, and learning which techniques are most effective in controlling them.

Highlights will include a variety of tools used in managing invasives, demonstration of specific methods for different situations, and a discussion of how to optimize time, effort, and money spent on control activities. Whether you’re a trail steward, natural resource manager, or a landowner concerned about the plants taking over your backyard, this workshop will give you some new tools for fighting invasive plants. Participants are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, dress for the weather, and bring all their invasive-related questions!

This workshop can be used for 3.0 category 1 CFE credits and 3.0 Professional Loggers Program credits.
