Dr. Linda Rohleder will discuss the steps to developing an invasive species management plan for your property, teach you to identify some common invasive species in our forests, and review the benefits and drawbacks of different management techniques. She will share her experiences writing her own forest stewardship plan for her 13-acre woodlands and some of the challenges she is trying to address as she works to restore the biodiversity of the forest.


Bring your own lunch and a dessert or side dish to share! We’ll provide drinks and snacks.

Last week, I listened to an audio book from my local library titled, The Confidence Code for Girls: Taking Risks, Messing Up, & Becoming Your Amazingly Imperfect, Totally Powerful Self by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, best-selling authors of The Confidence Code.

This book is written for teens and pre-teen girls, but it is also written for moms and other superhero women who remember the struggles of their own teen years and want to support the girls in their lives. I even found some take-home lessons for myself as a grown-up, confident woman.
