Vernal Pool Identification and Ecology
Aton Forest, Norfolk, CT

This workshop will give participants the knowledge to identify our local amphibians as adults, larvae, and eggs in the field and in the classroom. Identification of these animals will be based on physical characteristics as well as by calls. Instruction on how to locate and identify vernal pools and collect data for inventories and monitoring will also be covered.

Invasive Plant Workshop
Aton Forest, Norfolk, CT

Friday, April 11, 2014
8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Learn to identify woody invasive plants in the field. Late winter/early spring is prime season to touch up on your skills and get a jump on these pesky plants. This time of year is ideal for management but identification can be tricky. With the help of consulting field botanist Bill Moorhead you will learn to identify invasive woody plants in both terrestrial and wetland ecosystems, and distinguish them from those native plants with which they may be confused.
