Spring's a-coming...

Although there is still snow on the ground, spring is just around the corner and will be heralded by this year's crop of invasive exotic woody and herbacious plant species.  These plants are often the first to bloom out and the last to lose their leaves, thereby outcompeting native plants in the landscape.  If you are interested in managing this invasion (or having someone manage it for you) on your property consider attending this presentation in Great Barrington by the specialists who have been undertaking invasive plant treatments on Kellogg Conservation Center lands for the past 5 years.  They know their stuff and ATC highly recommends them.
