Invasive Plants Talk and Walk Sunday, October 1, 2 to 4 p.m. Meet at Connecticut College, 33 Gallows Lane, New London CT 06320 Registration required, call 860-439-5020 or email arbor@conncoll.edu Free Invasive plants have replaced native species in many different habitats in Connecticut. When native plants are displaced, the diversity of native birds, insects, animals and plants may be decreased and ecosystem functions may be negatively affected. Learn from the Connecticut College Arboretum horticulturalist, Leigh Knuttel, to identify the most common invasive plants and techniques to eradicate or control them. There will be an indoor class session followed by a short walk to look at a lot of invasive plants growing outside.
