Draft Agenda Here



  • Wednesday, September 19 is the gathering day – reception in the evening at the Elmhurst.

  • Thursday meeting and tour.

  • Friday morning more meetings, we end at noon with lunch on your own.


This year the focus is on the invasive weed species Phragmites. Most of the presentations on Thursday morning will be about management of this invasive weed in ditches, in wetlands, and on rights-of-way.

The afternoon tour will also have stops to look at various kinds of Phragmites control on roadsides and ditches, ending at the Long Point Marsh where there have been experimental applications by air over the last 2 years.

And to wind down this very full day, we will go to the Burning Kiln Winery, one of the best wineries in this up and coming wine region.  After a tour – and tasting of course – we will have our dinner at the winery.

Friday we will finish our program, and conduct the usual business meeting. Don’t forget to bring some money so you can bid on useful items at the silent auction.
