Field Notes
Having limited time, I went to the edge of the meadow where I expected to find some invasive species along the treeline that separated the meadow from the next meadow. Right off the bat I found my specimen to study and record. The Maine Invasive Plants handout clearly described what I should look for and record about what I assumed was a Honeysuckle
