Frazer Forest Stewardship

September 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Master Naturalist Kathryn Kolb for an informative and interactive Frazer Forest walk and stewardship session. We will discover how the history of the forest is revealed in the landscape and how to “read” the forest in any season. 

She will also share how to contribute to Frazer’s ongoing program to help care for this special remnant of the old growth forest. Be prepared to do some invasive removal as we practice identifying high value “indicator species” such as the uncommon native Horse Balm alongside the commonly confused invasives such as Japanese Chaff Flower. 

Japanese Chaff Flower is one of the worst invasive species we’ve ever seen and it’s being spread primarily by people walking dogs – for more about Japanese Chaff Flower see http://www.ecoaddendum.org/japanese-chaff-flower-a-silent-crisis-lurking-on-georgia-trails/

Together, in this work session we can rid this seasons Japanese Chaff flower out of Frazer Forest entirely! Water, long sleeves, long pants, closed toe shoes, and work gloves are recommended. 

Above (top), high value natives can easily be mistakenly harmed when removing English Ivy, Above (bottom) this uncommon native Lopseed found in Frazer Forest is NOT Japanese Chaff Flower, can you tell the difference?
