The next meeting of the Duck River Garden Club (DRGC) will be held Tuesday, April 25 in the Old Lyme Memorial Town Hall. The evening will begin with a social time at 6:30 p.m. followed by the program at 7 p.m. and the business meeting at 8 p.m.
This month’s presenter is Linda Clough, who is a DRGC member with a B.A. from UCLA in history; MLS (Library Science) from SCSU; and JD from the UConn School of Law. She received certification as a Master Gardener in 2011 and went on to receive Advanced Certification in 2013.
Her topic is Invasive Plants—Law and Lore. Clough will define what an invasive plant is and make attendees aware of the Connecticut General Statute covering their sale and propagation. She will talk about invasive plant habits, habitat, and address some remedial measures. In her talk, Linda hopes to emphasize why propagation of native species is important to the general environment. She will also discuss the findings presented at the seminar given by UConn’s Invasive Plant Working Group in October 2016.
