I’m a regular contributor to WOWnet, a professional forester, a mom of two boys, but not a woodland owner. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic my family adopted a local, neglected woodlot and got to pretend it was ours by working hard, creating a socially distanced community and making the world--we hope--a little better.

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.

It’s springtime after a long, snowy winter at Blue Ledge Farm in Leicester, and some of the roads in Addison County are flooded. A nearby farmer has bought the last spring doeling, but with roads underwater, she hadn’t been able to pick her up. Hannah Sessions, co-owner of Blue Ledge, scoops up the little gal and places her in the back of a truck. The trip is just one of Hannah’s many tasks as manager of a herd of 150 goats.
