Native vs. Invasive Plant ID Workshop in Connecticut

From Bill Moorhead: CLICK HERE for an announcement of two 1-day plant identification workshops, a Fairfield County edition and a Litchfield county edition, taught by me and co-sponsored by Aton Forest Inc. and Highstead Arboretum, focusing on distinguishing invasive plants from similar native species in the field in late winter/early spring, i.e., in leaf-off condition and/or somewhere between leaf-on and leaf-off.  The first takes place on Wednesday, Mar 23, 2011, at & near Highstead Arboretum in Redding, CT, and the second Friday, Mar 25, at & near White Memorial Conservation Center, in Litchfield, CT.  At both we will see in the field (weather permitting, in the lab, if not) most of the woody invasive plants that occur in Connecticut, several other non-native woody species that may come to recognized as invasives in the future, and possibly a number of invasive herbaceous species that are detectable at this time of year (if we can see the ground!).  Please forward this email to anyone that you know who might be interested in and benefit from it, and please contact me (contact info in the closing) if you have questions about the workshop.  I have included on this distribution list many people that I know probably do not need to take this workshop, in hopes that you would forward it to people who would benefit from it, and websites that reach people who would benefit from it.
Thanks and best wishes,
