Good Plant/Bad Plant? Untangling the way we regard our local vegetation

April 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Naturalist Judy Preston will lead a hike in The Preserve.which will be a leisurely walk to identify and better understand the difference between native, non-native, invasive and naturalized plants. The threats are real, and so are the challenges to addressing them. But even the “solutions” can be problematic. We will begin the discussion, but beware: you may leave with more questions!

Judy has been working in the environmental field doing community-based conservation in Connecticut for over 25 years. An experienced local conservationist, Judy consults to provide natural resource inventories and management plans, ecological garden and landscape design, and environmental outdoor experiences for small groups. She is employed full time at the Long Island Sound Study and Connecticut Sea Grant where she provides public outreach and education on the environmental issues facing Long Island Sound.

Parking at East entrance area.
