On May 11th join TTLT for a workshop all about invasives. The event starts with an introductory presentation followed by a field trip. Learn about invasive species and help us manage them at Newport Forest. Transportation will be provided to and from the field site.
Please register below to secure your spot!
You're welcome to attend the presentation portion only - please let us know if that's the case.
What to bring
Come prepared for an outdoor, off-trail experience. TTLT will provide work gloves and all equipment.
- Proper shoes (eg. hiking shoes, rubber boots) and long pants (no shorts!) are a must. This event will take place rain or shine so come prepared with rain gear, sunscreen etc.
- The forest will be buggy at that time of year and you may encounter ticks - bring whatever insect repellent you need.
- Bring your lunch and plenty of water and snacks.
- Bring your field guides, binoculars, and camera, if you have them. Newport Forest is a beautiful spot for birding and botany.
Please note there are no washroom facilities at the field site. This will be a rustic experience!
