Learn to Identify Aquatic Invasive Species

Southern VT rivers and ponds need your help – become a Vermont Invasive Patroller!

Learn to Identify Aquatic Invasive Species

Saturday, June 10th, 10:30 – 2:00 PM

Marlboro Graduate Center, Room 2E, 28 Vernon Street, Brattleboro

Join a workshop offered through the Vermont Invasive Patrollers (VIP) to learn the differences between native, exotic, nuisance and invasive species; how invasive species are introduced and established; how to differentiate native aquatic plants and animals from their invasive lookalikes (plants will be emphasized); and how to conduct surveys for aquatic invasive species in lakes and ponds.

This 3-hour VIP workshop will include classroom and hands-on identification training, and a half hour break for lunch.

An optional site visit to view the invasive aquatic plant, Eurasian watermilfoil in the Retreat Meadows will follow the workshop. You will need your own non-motorized vessel, pfd and paddle for the site visit. The site visit will be weather permitting.  

Register online at http://dec.vermont.gov/forms/vip-workshop-registration

Workshop and materials are offered at no cost. Space is limited.

Interested participants are encouraged to join the statewide network of volunteers who survey for aquatic invasive species in their favorite lake, pond or river.

For more information, contact Ann Bove (VT DEC, Lakes & Ponds Program) at ann.bove@vermont.gov or (802) 490-6120.

Workshop presented by VT DEC staff and co-hosted by Brattleboro Conservation Commission and WCNRCD.

Windham History Project at Windham Elementary School

TODAY —May 11  — We will be having an old fashioned potluck at 5:30, followed by a short exhibition of the students “Windham History Project.”  Immediately following we have a short time set aside for square dancing.   It should be fun to search books or the internet for old time recipes.  This is not exclusively for the school, bring friends, relatives, neighbors, and the more the merrier.
