Coming Event: Program on invasive species next Thursday, May 31, 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Meet at the shelter on the north side.

What is an "invasive" species? What is a "native" species? What is a naturalized species?

Here is a list of species we will see and identify. Can you put them into the above three categories?

Eastern red cedar
birdsfoot trefoil
crown vetch
black willow
Siberian elm
Ring-necked Pheasant
Red-winged Blackbird
Common Grackle
smooth brome
