On Saturday, Sept. 26, at 10 a.m. join Scott Matthies and Gary Griffin for a walk/talk at the H.E. Preston Sanctuary in Hampton.
They will discuss various methods used to control invasive plants, such as Japanese Barberry, Bittersweet and Multiflora Rosa.
The walk will go through a wooded area where a thick stand of Barberry has been removed and the methods used to remove it will be discussed. The walk will also pass along a field edge where repeated attempts have been made to drive back the thriving Bittersweet and other invasives.
Finally an area will be viewed that the State Department of Forestry and Horticulture used in its effort to control invasives.
Directions: the Sanctuary is on Route 97, 3 miles north from Hampton center, across from Kimball Hill Rd. Look for the Joshua’s Trust sign at the entrance. Parking is limited to the side of the road; be wary of traffic and poison ivy. For information, email Scott at [email protected]
