A Recreational Trails-Based Approach to Mapping and Managing Invasive Plants in Protected Areas

Room: TBD
Intro Level, Intermediate Level, Advanced Level

The trails of Lyme Land Trust preserves are enjoyed by many, including some of the most ecologically damaging invasive plant species in our region. Ashwini Sahasrabudhe will describe the trail-side patterns of infestation for several focal species based on two months of fieldwork using a simple custom-designed smartphone app, and Jim will address how LLT will use this information to inform management options. The workshop promises to be eye-opening for those who enjoy CT trails, and will be useful for anyone wishing to address invasive plant issues on land they own or manage.

Jim Arrigoni, Environmental Director, Lyme Land Trust
