Thursday, August 17th:

7 – 8:30pm: Herons With Carrie Crompton Carrie returns for a showing of herons she recorded in the wild. You’re invited to a showing of a 40-minute DVD chronicling the breeding season at a local great blue heron colony. It’s a “chick flick,” rated PG for some heron romance and violent feedings (but no fowl language). Free but RSVP. James L. Goodwin Conservation Center, Hampton

Saturday, August 19th:

8:45 – 11am: Orchard Hill Invasive Species Removal Demonstration Interested in eliminating problematic invasive plants? Learn methods of barberry removal with forester Ed McGuire at Orchard Hill in Goodwin State Forest. Meet in front of the Goodwin Conservation Center at 8:45 am. You will then be directed to Nutmeg Lane Parking. Note: Nutmeg Lane Parking is easier if you have a higher clearance vehicle. The option of carpooling at Goodwin may be an easier choice. Free but RSVP. James L. Goodwin Conservation Center, Hampton

10 – 11:30am: Gardeners Roundtable This workshop is intended for gardeners of all experience levels. We share best practices and pitfalls for gardening in eastern Connecticut. These monthly workshops cover a wide-range of topics, so please come with your questions, your expertise, and your own stories of success and failure in your gardens. Free but RSVP. James L. Goodwin Conservation Center, Hampton
