Many concerned citizens turned out for this latest BLT program. Discussion centered on these topics:

Why certain plants have been labeled 'invasive'.
Why letting an invasive plant get established on your property is not a good idea and how to prevent this from happening. 
How to identify 15 of the most 'notorious' CT invasive, how they function and options for control/eradication.

Attendees also received an illustrated guide about CT invasives developed by the Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District specifically for landowners. 
Sponsored by Berlin Land Trust (Land Stewardship Series).
