Invasive Knotweeds: Predicting Impacts

How and why do invasive knotweeds cause erosion, and what can you do about it? In this hybrid course, you will learn about the larger context of knotweeds, including how their management contributes to a more climate-resilient future and ways to integrate new scientific findings into existing conservation practices. The first class will be live virtual and the second will take place in the field. The first class will explore what the scientific literature can tell us, and in the field we will develop predictions for how winter will impact the location(s) we visit. The first session of this two-session course will be taught live virtual on October 20. The second session on October 22 will be taught in-person in the field in Western Connecticut. Attendance at Invasive Knotweeds: Evaluating Impacts is helpful though not required.
