442 Woodstock Rd, Woodstock
Upper Valley Land Trust Programs Director Alison Marchione will be presenting on UVLT’s history and mission of land conservation in the Upper Valley with a call to action for folks interested in joining a dynamic group of volunteers. UVLT is a non-profit, regional land conservancy working in 45 Vermont and New Hampshire towns along the Connecticut River Valley. For the past 33 years UVLT has worked to protect the vulnerable places in our valley – farms and forests, rivers and wetlands, recreational areas and community land marks. This presentation will touch on both the work that UVLT has done, our plans for the future, and why land conservation is important for all of us in our changing world.
Knotweed: Ecology & Control
January 24th, 2019
Montshire Museum of Science
1 Montshire Road, Norwich, VT
6:30 – 8pm
Knotweed is an aggressive invasive plant species that is becoming more widespread in the northeast. Because it spreads vegetatively, it is very difficult to control. Doug Cygan, from the NH Department of Agriculture, will give a presentation on the ecology of knotweed and the mechanical, cultural, biological, and chemical control methods described in his recent Best Management Practices publication. Tom Ebert, from USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, will talk about recommended control practices and federal assistance programs available to landowners. A discussion panel will share their local experience with Knotweed control.
Co-Sponsored with the Hanover Conservation Commission
