Invasive Plant Species Workshop, August 6th

Smith College’s Center for the Environment, Ecological Design, and Sustainablity (CEEDS) in collaboration with Connecticut River Watershed Council (CRWC), Mill River Greenway (MRG), and Grow Food Northampton (GFN), will be hosting an invasive species removal workshop on Saturday, August 6th from 12:30 to 4:30PM. The first half of the workshop will take place in the new CEEDS center in Wright Hall on Smith College campus in Northampton MA. This workshop will include identification of invasive plants common to the region, removal techniques, as well as a discussion of resources for those hoping to organize a removal event within their own community. The second half of the workshop will involve hands-on practice of invasive removal on GFN’s property on Meadow St. Participants are responsible for transportation to the GFN site.

This workshop is FREE but registration is required. Space is limited, so please register quickly! We will provide some tools, but if you have hand clippers or gloves, please bring them and plan to wear or bring long sleeves and pants. For more information or to register, contact Brittany Innis at brittany.innis@gmail.com.  Directions and more information on what to bring will be provided to registered participants.
