The Ontario Woodlot Association, Limestone Chapter will herald the coming of spring with a walk in the woods and a talk on invasive species control.

“Dog-strangling vine: understanding its invasiveness and controlling its spread” is about the research into biological controls for this invasive plant. Dr. Naomi Cappuccino is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Carleton University. She also works with Agriculture and Agri-food Canada’s - Central Experimental Farm, on the biological control of invasive weeds using plant-feeding insects.

Join an afternoon field trip nearby to discover the diverse alvar, woodlands, and wetlands that provide habitat to many varied species. See the results of 45 years of mixed land use. Learn more about bird habitat, and view the progress of a Ducks Unlimited wetland enhancement project.
