With nearly 80% of Vermont land being privately owned, private landowners play a critical role in the management of invasive species across the state. Invasive species pose a serious problem Vermont’s natural communities along with livelihoods of humans and wildlife alike in direct and indirect ways. Managing invasive species is crucial to protecting, restoring, and helping maintain resilient natural landscapes that make Vermont a beautiful and bountiful place.
In this workshop, we’ll be learning all about the basics and different management approaches related to Vermont’s most common terrestrial invasive plant species. This workshop will be led by experts Mike Bald, founder of Got Weeds?, and Tom Groves, Woodland Services Division Manager for Long View Forest. This will take place in the field with hands-on demonstrations and active opportunities to learn.
