Next Meeting: Monday, July 17, 2017; 7:30 p.m. in the Council Room. Meetings are open to the public. Please join us!
The Woods Committee has rescheduled our monthly meeting from July 3 to Monday, July 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Council Room due to the July 4th holiday weekend. Meetings are open to the public. We continue our control efforts of non-native invasive plants in the East Woods with initial emphasis on wisteria and bush honeysuckle. We had anticipated die-off and decomposition of these invasive plants following treatments last month so some areas of the East Woods are much browner than usual. We also continue discussions on controlling deer over-browsing to support reforestation as outlined in the 2015 Forest Stewardship Plan. The Woods Committee is responsible for protecting the East and West Woods as our Town’s Forest Preserve in accordance with the Town’s Master Plan.
