Native and Invasive Plant Walk: “Learn Your Land” Series
September 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
New Canaan’s meadows and woodlands are full of hundreds of species of trees, flowers, and other plants. While many of these species have been here for millennia, some were brought to New England in the last few decades, and have begun wreaking havoc on our natural ecosystems. Join New Canaan Land Trust board member Susan Bergen, for a look into how these native and invasive plants interact with one another, and change the dynamics of New Canaan’s habitats and ecosystems. Participants will learn to identify some of the common native and invasive understory plants in our region, and take away tips for managing them on their own properties.
Participants should wear sturdy shoes, and be prepared to walk on wooded, sometimes uneven, terrain.

If the 12pm to 1:30pm time slot reaches capacity, an over-flow session will be offered from 1:30pm to 3pm.
