Distinguishing Invasive Plants and Native Look-A-Likes

Wednesday, April 1, 2015
8:30am – 5:00pm

Aton Forest

Learn to identify woody invasive plants in the field. Late winter/early spring is prime season to touch up on your skills and get a jump on these pesky plants. This time of year is ideal for management but identification can be tricky. With the help of consulting field botanist Bill Moorhead you will learn to identify invasive woody plants in both terrestrial and wetland ecosystems, and distinguish them from those native plants with which they may be confused. A brief introductory classroom session will be followed by visits to a number of field sites.
