Agronomist Todd Mervosh, PhD - Plant Scientist and Land Conservationist
Kent Memorial Library
Suffield encompasses a large area of land (>42 square miles) consisting of diverse topography and ecosystems. Much of it remains undeveloped as agricultural lands, woodlands, meadows, wetlands, and other open space. A long history of farm families, conservation-minded citizens and town leaders have maintained these lands for the benefit of ourselves, future residents, and the native plants and animals that live among us. Todd will discuss the ecosystems of Suffield and a brief history of land conservation in town. He will also address ecological threats caused by spread of non-native invasive species.
